Where do I go to borrow?

Go to the Ground Floor to borrow items using your Campus/Library Card.

Borrow (and renew or return) most items yourself using the Self-Service Points. If you have holds, these can be collected from the shelves in the Short Loan area on the Ground Floor of the Library. These items must be issued on the adjacent Self-Service Points.

Issue (and return) Short Loan items using the Self-Service Points within the section on the Ground Floor.

Some items (such as unbound journal issues) can't be issued on the Self-Service Points. To borrow these please take them to the Welcome Desk on the Ground Floor of the Library.
