“How do I borrow or return books?”


The Library has an RFID self-issue/self-return system located on the Lower Level.Up to 10 books may be borrowed, with books automatically renewed until the end of the academic year unless recalled by another reader. Due to pressure on key texts, readers are encouraged to return books once they are no longer needed.

“Can I request a library book?”

Our library functions largely on a responsive basis, i.e. we order books according to student requests. If the library does not have a book required for your course/research, please place a request by using the online form.
