Undergraduate students of the University may borrow up to ten items for one week.

The fine for each overdue book from the open access collections is 40p per day.

The fine for each overdue book from the reserve collection is 40p per hour.

Reading Lists and the Reserve Collection
MPhil Seminar Reading is kept behind the issue desk. Books in this collection can be borrowed for three hours at a time and overnight after 4.00 pm (3.00pm on Fridays).
Reserve stock issued overnight must be returned by 10.30am the following working day. The fine for each overdue item from the reserve collection is 40p per hour.
Some undergraduate reading list material is similarly organised.
The catalogue entry for a book will tell you if it’s part of the reserve collection.

Interlibrary Loans
If you need an article or book that isn’t available within the University, you can order it through an interlibrary loan. The University Library has an interlibrary loan department and is able to subsidise the cost, making it cheaper than ordering through our library. The Enquiry Desk of the Inter-Library Loans Department is off the Catalogue Room. It is open Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 5.15pm (Friday, 4.55pm) and on Saturday from 9.30am to 4.30pm. Telephone (01223) 333039.
