Short Loans and 7 Day Loans
Items which are in high demand can placed on Short Loan or 7 Day Loan by lecturers. This is to enable access for as many students as possible. Short Loans are a temporary collection whereas 7 Day Loan is a permanent collection.
Short Loans are held in the Academic Reserve Room and may be borrowed for 4 hours at a time during the day. Items in the Short Loan Room must be issued using the self-issue machines, opposite the LRC Service Desk.
7 Day loans are integrated with the main library stock but can be identified by a yellow label and bookmark.
Overnight and weekend borrowing of Short Loans
Short Loan Collection - short loan items may be borrowed for 4 hours during the day. After 5pm (Monday to Friday in term-time) and after 3pm (in holiday periods) they may be borrowed overnight - to be returned by 10am the following morning.
