How Long Can I Borrow items?

Standard loans may be borrowed for two weeks. If more than two holds have been placed on an item, the loan period will temporarily change to one week.


Short Loan Collection  -  most resources can be borrowed overnight, a small number of items are available for 3 day loan, but some are for use in The Library only and others may only be used in the High Demand area.  The date label inside the book tells you how long you can borrow it for.


School Practice collection  -  resources from this collection can be borrowed by all users.  Some students who go on teaching practice are able to borrow School Practice resources for up to 4 weeks.  Ask staff at the HIP if you have any queries regarding your eligibility.


Staff and Researchers may borrow standard loans for eight weeks.  Resources will be recalled if other users have placed holds on them.
