Alumni are allowed 12 renewals on 14 day, 15 renewals on 7 day loan items and 6 renewals on 3 day loan items. External members are allowed 12 renewals.
Short loan items (including DVDs) cannot be renewed by any category of member.
Limits on the number of times you can renew exist to enable fair access to all library users. The Library cannot provide unlimited copies for everyone, so we seek to ensure that books are not out of circulation for excessive periods, particularly core textbooks and other items in high demand. The maximum number of renewals has increased over recent years and for standard loan items the renewals allowed for undergraduates enables books to be kept for the full academic year, as long as they are not recalled. Note that renewals cannot be made if a reservation or hold has been placed on a particular book.
Electronic resources allow year round access and the library encourages users to choose ebook options as much as possible.
