Loan periods

Yellow label
Reference only- material has to be worked with in the library


Green label

No label

7 day and 21 day loans should automatically renew for staff and students for up to 16 weeks (unless they become reserved). An email is sent if items cannot be renewed for any reason.

One day loan items

One day loan items show a pink 'one day loan' label and are books in high demand. They are shelved along with other loan categories in the main book stock.

One day loan items can be loaned overnight using the self-service machines. They have a return date of 11.45am the next day and are not renewable.

If you have problems accessing one day loan material, please ask a member of library staff for assistance.
