Covid-19: Print Book Services

Due to staff working from home and limited access to campus print collections, many print book services are not available at this time. These include postal lending, hold requests and intercampus book delivery. We appreciate this will impact some students more than others. Library staff are working with educators to ensure all set readings are available electronically. Contact us if this not your specific case and we can assist by working with you to find a digital version of the resource or a relevant alternative.

All current loans have been extended for a period of one month and a general fines amnesty will apply. Please check the library's Covid-19 Services page for updates on these changes.

Returning books to the library by post is made at borrowers' expense.
