Library staff would like to wish you all happy holidays! We love helping you with all your Library related queries and look forward to seeing you again in January.

Inter-Library Loans

Quick reminder – if you have Inter-library loans to collect you have until 5pm tomorrow to collect if you are leaving Campus. Only Library staff can check these out for you and we are available until 5 pm today and from 8 am – 5 pm tomorrow.

If you are on Campus until 22nd December, Inter-Library loans can be issued Monday – Friday from 8 am to 5pm until this date (however Library staff will be unavailable from 12:30 pm on Wednesday 20th). Staff can issue again from 8 am on 3rd January. Please note the ILL service will not be staffed between these dates.

We cannot guarantee that any ILL requests for books that are placed after 8th December will be supplied before university closes for Christmas.

Thanks and enjoy a well-deserved break! 😊
