Manage your loans


Borrowed items will be automatically renewed, except under any of the following conditions:

  • any item you have borrowed is overdue
  • the item is reserved by another borrower
  • your borrowing rights have been suspended
  • the item has already been renewed two times

After the second renewal, you will receive a reminder notice that an item is due.


You may receive a recall notice if your item has been reserved by another borrower.
Recalls help to provide all clients with fair access to resources. Loan periods for standard items are generous and will be automatically adjusted according to user demand via the recall system.


Always return items on or before their due date to avoid penalties.
Items can be returned via the chutes outside the entrances of all campus libraries or via post using the Reply Paid service.
