Borrowing information

The Library has a range of materials which you can borrow for different loan periods. All books held in the Library can be found by doing a keyword or title search using the Library SmartSearch.

If you cannot find a particular item, either ask at the Help desk or if the book is out on loan, then reserve it for yourself using the Library catalogue.

The self-service facilities enable you to borrow and return books, including short loan and reserved items, even when the Help desk is closed.  If you need help with using the self-service system see our video guide. 

If you are a part time student, a distance learner, on your placement or have a disability or additional need, you can ask the Library staff to post books out to you.

You will need your uniCARD each time you come to the Library, but if you ever lose your card or any other personal property please let us know immediately.
