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 Staff 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 items you want to borrow and your staff card, to the Help Desk or self-service kiosk. Without your card you will not be able to borrow or renew items.


All loans will be recorded and the date label stamped, or receipt printed, with the date by which the item must be renewed or returned.


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