FOUR books from the main collection may be borrowed at any time during the day for use outside the Library for a 4 week period. These can be renewed up to a maximum of three times, reservations permitting, either online via the Library Catalogue or at the Issue & Enquiry desk.

THREE books and up to FIVE offprint items may be borrowed from the Short Loan Collection at one time. The standard rolling Short Loan period is three hours long. e.g. a book borrowed at 9.50am is due back by 12.50pm. Books borrowed from the Short Loan Collection may be used outside the Library. Books borrowed after 4.45pm (2.15pm Saturday) are normally due back the next day (or Monday if borrowed on a Saturday) within an hour of the Library opening. No looseleaf books may be used outside the Library and must be returned to the Issue & Enquiry desk by 7.45pm on weekdays or 5.15pm on Saturdays. Books may be renewed at the Issue & Enquiry desk.

Fines are charged on the late return of all Short Loan books and serials of 50p per hour to encourage their prompt return.
