No matter how many or how few modules you are studying, you may
borrow the same number of books as students enrolled on a full-time
programme. Books are usually available to borrow for one week or
three weeks and you may renew items an unlimited number of times
providing that there are no reservations on them.
We will email you notification of items that are shortly to be
returned to allow time for renewals. You may renew your items by
telephone using our Learning Centre Direct service, or online
via the My Account button available on most
Learning Centre web pages. You will need your borrower
number and PIN to do this.
Email notifications are also used to let you know about
reservations or inter-library loans that are awaiting collection at
your requested Learning Centre. You will be contacted at your
University email address.
If you are travelling some distance from the University we
are happy to check the online catalogue for availability of
any urgently required texts. We will also reserve items for you if
required. Please telephone Learning Centre
Direct to obtain this assistance.
Part-time students are often allowed to borrow materials from
other University Libraries which may be closer to where you live or
work. View Using Other Libraries for
more details of the borrower schemes available to you.

to you wherever you are studying. Many of our online databases
