Short Loan Collection
The libraries have a separate collection of books that are in heavy demand. This is called the Short Loan Collection.
J. B. Priestley Library
Short Loan items can be found in the Self Service Room on Floor 0 and may be borrowed for a period of 24 hours. If borrowed on a Friday they are due back by 10:00 the following Monday morning. Items may be returned via the automated book returns unit next to the Welcome Desk.
You may renew Short Loan items once after which they must be returned to the J. B. Priestley Library. Short Loan items can be renewed online via the Library Catalogue. Log into your record, then click on the renewals tab.
Note: you cannot renew if you have a fine of £5 or more.
Fines are charged on overdue Short Loan items at the rate of 70p per hour.
Management and Law Library
Short Loan items are kept behind the counter and may be borrowed for a period of 24 hours. If borrowed on a Friday they are due back by 10:00 the following Monday morning. At the end of the loan period all Short Loan items borrowed from the Management and Law Library must be returned there and not the J. B. Priestley Library.
