Loan periods and fines for journals
Current journals cannot be borrowed from Durham University Library.
Bound journals can only be borrowed from the Bill Bryson Library. You cannot borrow bound journals from the Leazes Road, Palace Green or Queen's Campus Libraries.
Using a borrowing machine
Loan periods vary. It is essential that you look at your receipt when you borrow a journal to check when it is due back. You will be fined for the late return of overdue items (see below).
