Borrowing Items

To borrow resources you will need to register at the Issue Desk. Students can borrow up to 6 items. Most books can be borrowed for 3 weeks and DVDs for 1 week. Check the date label at the front of the book to see when it is due back.


If the book or DVD you want is on loan to another person you can reserve it, either at the Issue Desk or online via the online catalogue. You can also reserve items which are at the other campus, these will be delivered to your campus when they become available.


If you want to keep an item longer than the due date you can request a renewal. You can renew an item up to 2 times, provided another Library user does not require it. You can renew items in person or by phone or online via our online catalogue.

Overdue Charges

Fines are charged for items which are returned late:

    For the first 2 weeks overdue - 5p per item per day
    After 2 weeks overdue - 10p per item per day

You can avoid fines by returning or renewing items by the due date.

Lost items

If you lose an item which you have borrowed you will have to pay for its replacement.
