Vacation borrowing

  • Vacation borrowing works in exactly the same way as term-time borrowing - loan periods do not alter.
  • Remember that standard loans periods will remain at three weeks for undergraduates and these items may need to be renewed a number of times during the vacation period.
  • If you are spending the Easter vacation away from the North East, think carefully about borrowing 3 day loan items as these will need to be renewed every three days.
  • Items can be renewed up to 10 times if the item is not recalled, so the maximum borrowing period for 3 day loan items is 30 days. After this point, the item will begin to accrue fines and will need to be returned to the Library.

For full information about borrowing during the Easter vacation, visit our Vacation Periods webpage.
