Introducing auto-renewal of loans

We're pleased to introduce a great new Library service - auto-renewal. From now on, you won't need to remember to renew your borrowed Library items, because the Library does it for you!

This convenient service automatically renews your eligible borrowed items.  Library items are borrowed for an initial period of 14 or 28 days depending whether you are an undergraduate, postgraduate or staff.

The Library automatically renews your items, 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. 

Check your Library account.

Remember whatever Library service you choose, you're in good hands. We're here to help.
