Renewals & Reservations


If no-one else has reserved the item, it can be renewed. Renewals may be carried out online via the library catalogue, by phone, or in person at either library helpdesk.

Renewal requests for interlibrary loans can also be made from the 'My Account' section of the library catalogue.


If someone else has an item on loan which you want, you can place a hold on it to reserve it. Please note you can only reserve up to 10 items at a time. The library staff can help you do this, or you can do it yourself using the library catalogue.


Any standard loan book is subject to recall if a hold is placed on it.

Recalls work as follows: 

  • The return period after a recall will be 7 days
  • Recall notices will be sent to college/ university email addresses
  • Recalled items are subject to fines if not returned by the new date
