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 may borrow a maximum of 25 items.
  • Matriculated students can borrow a maximum of 15 items. 

Reference material and some other collections are not normally available for loan. Most of our book and other loans are now dynamic which means they will be automatically renewed for up to a maximum of 4 months unless recalled (known as the Intelligent Loan​).


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 dat 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.
