Reserving library books

If you are looking for a library book and there are no copies available to borrow, you can reserve a copy.  You can reserve a book by:

(1) coming to the library desk with your student card

or

(2) reserving the book online (View tutorial or View in Moodle)

 

When a copy of the reserved book is returned to the library we will hold it for you.  A pickup notice will be sent to your student email address and you will have  3 college days to collect the reservation.  If you do not collect it within 3 college days, it will be returned to the library shelves.

Note: reservations can only be made if no copy of the book is currently available in the library.

Renewing library books

View tutorial or View in Moodle

When library books are issued, they are stamped with a due date or a date by which they must be returned.  Books that are not returned on, or before, the due date will be considered overdue.  Fines are charged when library books are overdue.

If you wish to keep your library books after the due date, you must renew them before the due date.  Renewing your library books extends the due date.  You can renew your library books up to 5 times so long as:

  • the books are not overdue
  • the books have not been reserved by another student

 

You can renew your library books by:

(1) coming to the library desk with your student card

or

(2) self-issue machine (just “borrow” the books again)

or

(3) online (see tutorials above)

Short loans and library use only

Most of the books in the library can be borrowed for 2 weeks; they are long loans.  However, at the start of each semester, we ask lecturers to let us know the core texts for each module.  In order to increase the accessibility of core texts, we change their loan length.  Usually:

  • we change the first copy of the book to library use only.  This can only several students to access the book each day.
  • we change all other copies of the book to short loan.  Short loans are for 1 week.

Don’t forget: if you can’t find a copy of the book you need, you should reserve it!

You can learn more about short loans and library use only books here: View tutorial or View on Moodle
