Christmas vacation library loan periods

In general terms, 28-day loan and 7-day loan items will be issued to take account of the upcoming Christmas break so that they don’t need to be returned during the vacation period.

28-day loan items borrowed or renewed up until 10 December are already being issued with a return date of 8 January 2014.

Normal 28-day loan periods will resume From Wednesday 11 December.

7-day loan items borrowed or renewed from Friday 6 December will be due for return on 8 January 2014.

However, your 7-day loan books will not renew automatically to cover the vacation period:

  1. Login to your borrower account to check and renew your loans from Friday 6 December.
  2. Review your loans information to confirm that ALL your books have renewed to a due date AFTER the vacation period.
  3. Return any books that you cannot renew before you leave campus for the holidays.  (Books reserved by other readers cannot be extended beyond their original due date).

Normal 7-day loan periods will resume from Friday 3 January.

Short Loan books will be issued and due for return as normal from the
Issue Desk during staffed hours in the Christmas vacation.

All borrowers are reminded that although there are no limits on the
number of times a book can be renewed, any item can be reserved by
another borrower at any time during the vacation period which would
prevent book loans from being extended beyond the 8 January due date.
Reserved items would need to be returned to the Library in order to
avoid fines.  Postal returns are possible but can be costly.

Our opening times page indicates when staff will be available to handle
queries and offer advice about returning items required by other people,
renewing overdue loans and paying bills.

Please do check with Library staff for advice about borrowing books over the vacation if you have any questions.
