Students may borrow up to 5 items for up to 2 weeks at a time. New students are given a library ticket in their first term. Keep it in your pencil case or wallet, as you will need it every time you want to take out or renew your books.
Books should be returned to the main desk in the in LRC. If you need the books for longer you may renew them. You don't need to have them with you, just bring your library ticket to the counter. Items may be reserved if they are already on loan - please ask at the desk. We send out overdue notices regularly to remind you which books need to be returned.
