Introducing auto-renewal of loans

Great news! From Thursday 1 December 2016, the Library will start automatically renewing loans of physical books and audiovisual items. What does this mean for you?

Library items are borrowed for an initial period of 14 or 28 days depending whether you are an undergraduate, postgraduate or staff. With the new system the Library will renew your items automatically, three days before the due date, for a further loan period of 14 or 28 days. This will continue until a hold is placed on an item by someone else, up to a maximum borrowing time of 12 months (3 months for CAVAL borrowers).

If an item you have borrowed has a hold placed on it, you will receive an email from the Library and you will need to return it by the due date.

Overdue fines are still 50 cents per day per loan, however we anticipate there will be less fines thanks to the automated renewals.
