Vacation borrowing, renewals and recalls

  • Remember that standard loan periods are the same as term-time borrowing.
  • Library users are still able to reserve items during University holidays and your books may be recalled. They will need to be returned to the Library.
  • Find details for our libraries on our Library sites webpages.
  • Items can be renewed up to 10 times only if the item is not recalled.
  • If another user requests an item which you have on loan, it will be given a new due date by which you must return the book to the Library. During summer vacation you will have 2 weeks to return recalled books.
  • If you need to return an item whilst on vacation, you should post it to the Library. For Library address and contacts, please visit:
