Summer Loans and long term loan requests

Non-renewable long term loan items

Some library patrons may have found that your loans have not been renewed and the Library has asked you to return your loan items to us recently.  This is normal and in line with our new automatic renewals policy.

While you may keep a library book for so long as no-one else has reserved it and we will automatically renew the loan term every week, once every 12 months, we require you to bring those long term loan items back to the library to be discharged and re-issued to your account.

This is to confirm that the items are still in your possession and available for circulation.  This can be done during Issue Desk staffed hours.  If you are not located close to the campus and cannot physically bring those items that have been requested to the Library please let us know as soon as possible by contacting

Summer Loans 2016

Books that are borrowed or renewed from 23 May will be issued until the 5 October or the expiry date on your library card.  Items can still be recalled during the vacation.  However, you will find that the due date will not change and that you do not have to return them before the 5 October.

If you are in a position to return recalled loan items during the vacation other library users will be very grateful to have the items available.  Fines are only charged on items that have been recalled for other users or when patrons have lost a library book.

If you have any queries about your account please contact the Issue Desk via:
