Foundation Year: Books & e-books

Borrowing from the Library

All University staff and students can borrow up to 40 books at any one time.

You can borrow most books for one week and these will be automatically renewed for you each week until someone else needs the book and requests it, or after 6 months.

You will only be fined if you do not bring the book back when it is recalled by another user, or if you do not return the book to the library after 6 months.
