Library Online

How Do I Borrow?

You can borrow resources from The Library using your Campus Card and Library PIN.

  • Resources are issued on the self service machines.
  • Remember to collect and keep your receipt - it is your responsibility to know when your resources are due back and make sure they are returned or renewed on time.
  • The Library has a security system which will be triggered if you try to leave with resources that have not been issued.

Please ask staff if you need assistance.

Students, staff and guest users can borrow from both City Campus and Headingley Library. Students from other Universities may be eligible to join, but may only be able to use The Library for reference purposes. Please enquire at the Help and Information Point.
