How to Borrow Resources

Take the book and your student card to the Library desk or a self-service kiosk to checkout. Resources are issued for 28 days or 7 days for items in high demand. It’s possible to renew your loan providing no one else is waiting for it.

When you return the book, you can simply drop it off at the library desk at any of the campus libraries.

If you wish to reserve a book online, you can do so through the online catalogue.

Chromebook Self Service

Students and staff wishing to borrow a Chromebook for the day can do so using the self service Chromebook lockers throughout the campuses. They provide a self-service checkout; however, you will need your NEC to scan in. Once you’ve selected “Borrow” or “Return”, simply scan your card and the lapsafe will open the correct locker. It will also automatically add or remove the device from your reader record, so there should be no need to inform the library staff.

There is even an “Accessible Borrow” option to ensure an easier to reach locker.
