Return your loans

All existing loans, from before or during the previous closure period, are now due back. Please return or renew your loans as soon as possible.

Note: Based on the latest health advice, quarantining of items is being phased out as of the 29 of June, but it will take a few days to process the last week of returned items. During this time items may still appear on your account for up to three days after you have returned them (but this won’t effect your 20 item borrow limit).

E-resources always available. Keep using our e-resources

All of our E-Resources will still be available through our website and apps.
