Managing your library books

  • Undergraduates can borrow 20 books, taught postgraduates 25 books and researchers 35 books at any one time.
  • If you need a book for longer you can renew the book by going to your Library Record.
  • If all copies of a book are out on loan and you would like to get hold of a copy you need to reserve it
  • If there is an electronic copy (e-book) click on the link and login.  E-books are exactly the same in terms of content as a printed book; they are just in a different format. We buy e-books from a number of different sources, please check the help files on the specific platform or contact the Library Help desk for further help.
