All members of the University can use the library.
Your Library CardYou will receive your library card at the beginning of your course. Take good care of it, as you will need your library card to take items out of the library. A charge of £5 will be made for a replacement card if the original gets lost.
How can I find books?Read our step-by-step Help Guide to finding books within our Library.
How many items take I take out?The number of items you can take out of the library will depend on which course you are enrolled on. Remember, you are responsible for the items issued on your card - don't let anyone else use your card and never pass on library books to others.Students enrolled on Initial Teacher Training courses can borrow an additional 20 Teaching Practice items by using their Teaching Practice (TP) card.
How long can I borrow items for?Items can be borrowed for different periods of time. Here's a quick guide to knowing how long you can keep the item for.
If items are not returned or renewed before their due date, overdue fines are charged to your account. The fine will depend on the type of loan which is overdue.
Accruing fines are applied daily (except weekends) and are the estimated fine for your outstanding overdue books. Once the items have been renewed or returned it will be an actual fine and will display on your library account. Please see our Help-Guide for more information and examples.
We advise that fines should be paid immediately. Non-payment of debts may restrict your ability to borrow until the debt is settled.
