  • Improved Borrowing Services for All Library Users

    Following on from a survey carried out by the Library, a number of changes to borrowing policies have been introduced. Designed to make it easier for everyone to get the best from Library collections, there's extra focus on enhancing services for students.

    New loan categories have been introduced that increase how long items can be borrowed for:

    Short-loan items are now available for 2 Day Loan
    1 Week items are now available for 2 Week Loan
    Standard loan items can now be borrowed for 2 months

    Fines for items returned late have been updated resulting in a significant reduction in charges that users will pay for overdue items. Additionally, undergraduate students can now borrow an extra 4 standard loans, raising their allowance to 12 standard loans at one time.
