Induction: Borrowing

Library Guide for New Students


You are automatically registered to borrow from the library after you have matriculated.  Once you collect your Smartcard, you can use the self-service machines to borrow and return your books. Please take note of the date your books are to be returned!

The library catalogue is a searchable database of everything that is held in the LRC. It includes information about the books, eBooks, DVDs, print journals etc. that are available from the LRC. You will find a link to the library catalogue in the Useful Links on the Library Services homepage.

Books cannot be issued without your Smartcard so make sure you bring it with you!
