When you have found a book you want to borrow (items can be searched on the Library Catalogue), take it to one of our self service machines and use your University ID card to borrow it. You must have your University ID card with you to borrow books. 

If you need help using the self-service machines, staff at the Help Desk will be more than happy to show you what to do. 

You will be given the option to print a receipt or have it sent to your registered email address. The receipt gives the date that the items are due to be returned. Patrons with long-term loans, staff members or research postgraduates, may be asked to return books earlier if they are requested by someone else.

You are responsible for knowing when your books are due for return; you can check your borrowing record through My Library Record. As you are responsible for all books issued on your card you should not lend your card or books to other people.

If all the copies of the book you want are out on loan, you will be able to reserve a copy through the Library Catalogue. There is a maximum of 15 reservations or holds per person at any one time, depending on your category (e.g., undergraduate, postgraduate, staff, etc.).
