Circulation & Reference

Circulation Service

At our main desk you can access two different services, circulation and reference.

Circulation desk is where you can borrow and return your books, get help finding a book, pick up your reserves and Interlibrary Loans.

The library’s collections are managed and developed to meet the needs of our students, researchers and staff. In addition to a collection of electronic and print journals, we also provide access to a growing collection of electronic resources, including ebooks.

We also have around 30.000 physical books, most of which are available for borrowing. Our general collection can be borrowed for up to 30 working days unless books are required by another reader when the loan period may be shortened and you will not be able to renew.

All communications from the Library regarding your loans and your library account will be sent to your university email address, so please check it regularly. Fines are charged for books which are returned late, and replacement charges for lost or damaged items may be added to your Library account. Please review our rules and regulations for detailed information.

If you notice a book on your account that you think you may already have returned, you need to contact us straightaway, and we will search for the book within the library on your behalf.
