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.
