How do I borrow?

You must present your College card if you want to borrow any materials from the LRC or carry out any LRC transactions including copying and printing. Your College card is your personal College ID.

How many items can I take out?

You can borrow up to 15 items. Items are available for different loan periods. Items without any stickers on them are 3 week loans, red stickers indicate one week loan items, yellow are 3 day and green are overnight.  There are also 3 hour loans and Library use only items which may only be used within the LRC. Check the loan period on web catalogue before you borrow to make sure you can return items on time.

What can I do if I need the item for longer?

You can renew one and three week loan items twice as long as they have not been recalled. You can renew by phone, email, in person or via the web catalogue

If a book I need is already on loan, what can I do?

You can use the Hold function on the web catalogue to request its recall. You will need your College ID and PIN to hold an item. Ask at the enquiry desk for your PIN.

Can I check my borrower account online?

You can keep track of what you have out on loan by using the web catalogue to check your borrower account online. You will need your College ID and PIN to access your account online.  Ask at the enquiry desk for your PIN.  If you have problems using the online service please contact the LRC.

What happens if I return an item late or lose it?

We do charge fines for late returned or lost material. If you think you have lost a book please contact the Learning Resource Centre so the problem can be resolved swiftly.

Remember you can avoid fines by renewing your books online, by telephone or in person. If the Learning Resource Centre is closed you can return books via the bookdrop outside LRC3.
