The lowdown on library lending


Pile of books

Did you know that Abibliophobia is the fear of running out of reading material?

More importantly, did you know that students have unlimited library borrowing? That’s right, we will let you walk out the door with all the books you can carry…as long as you borrow them first! No Abibliophobia here!

For postgraduate students the lending period is 6 months. Undergraduates get a slightly less epic 60 days. 1 loan renewal is available to all students.

The only time your due date changes is if someone else wants the book you’ve got. When a hold is placed on a book in your possession, you will receive an email asking you to return it within two weeks. In this case, be kind and return the book asap to the nearest library. Then when you place a hold on a book someone else has, karma will totally have your back and that person will return your desired book asap. It’s the circle of library life.

If you need any more information, or want some help finding the books you need, check out our borrowing information or come and see our friendly library staff. We’ll help you find all the books you can reasonably carry*.
