If you have any queries, please contact a member of staff in the Learning Resource Centre.

Borrowing:

Students can borrow up to 10 items (this rises to 15 for members of staff). These items can be renewed 3 times without the items being present (5 times for staff) and are usually loaned for a period of 7 or 28 days.
If you do not return your items on time, there is a fine of 10p per day, per item.

Renewing your books is easy:

  • Do it online via the library catalogue and enter your ID number in the ‘Reader Code’ box and login.
  • Telephone us on 01223 418216 and quote your ID number.
  • Call into the LRC in person and have your ID badge ready for renewals to take place.

What if the book I need is on loan?

Our library catalogue displays whether a book is on loan or not. If it is on loan, log-in to your library account, and use the ‘Reserve’ button to reserve the first available copy. We will then contact you explaining how and where to collect your book.
