The Library building will be open as normal throughout the Easter Vacation period from Friday 18 April – Monday 5 May and Self Service facilities will be available. However, the library will be unstaffed throughout the Easter weekend and on the May 5 Bank Holiday.
No 7-day or 28-day loan books are due for return or renewal during the Easter vacation period. However, books can be borrowed and returned as normal. Loan periods have been adjusted to take account of the Easter Vacation as described below:
7-day loan items borrowed or successfully renewed from Friday 11 April will be due for return or renewal on or before Wednesday 7 May. (Standard 7-day loan periods will return to normal from Wednesday 30 April)
28-day loan items borrowed now March are not due for return or renewal until after the Easter Vacation – unless the standard 28-day period has been shortened to take account of high user demand.
The loan periods for Short Loan Collection and Reference-Only items will be the same as usual during the Easter Vacation period.
Please review your borrower account or contact the Issue Desk if you are unsure about the due dates for any of your books. All loans items will need to be renewed as normal by borrowers in order to extend the loan periods beyond the Easter Vacation if they have not already done so. If another borrower has placed a reservation on a book you have on loan or your total library charges are £10 or more, you will not be able to renew the loans on your books. Please confirm the due dates of your books before leaving campus for the Easter break to avoid heavy fines.
