Renewals and reservations

Loans can be renewed online via the catalogue using your personal account, unless they are reserved by another user.

Books that are already on loan can be placed on hold. You will be notified by email when the book becomes available.

Lost and overdue items

You are responsible for any lost items and will be invoiced to cover replacement costs.

Overdue notices are sent by email and loan privileges are temporarily blocked until the item is returned. If not returned, it is considered lost and will be invoiced.
