​Joining as a Staff Member


University staff are automatically registered with the library service when they start working at the university. If you want to borrow items, bring your s​taff ID card with you. 


Borrowing items

Loan limits:

  • ​University staff and registered students can borrow a maximum of 30 items. This includes books, laptops, and inter library loans

Reference material and some other collections are not normally available for loan. Most of our books and other items automatically renew unless recalled. See the Automatic Renewals​ page for more information.


If an item on loan to you is requested by another user we will recall it by sending you an email asking you to return it within 7 days or by the due date if less than 7 days.  ​

How to borrow

Take the books you want to borrow and check them out using the self-service kiosks in our libraries. These are easy to use, simply follow the directions on the screen. If you require assistance please ask at the Library Help Desk.​


You are responsible for all items issued on your card. Do not pass them on to other people or lend your card to others.
