Bring your book(s) to the Circulation Desk.
Bring your book(s) to the Reception Desk. Staff will record your name and phone number on a book card located at the back of the book, and will file that until the book is returned. The loan period is 2 weeks. When finished, return books to the Reception Desk.
Usually campus staff are available, but if not, you may sign out your own books. Write your name and today’s date on the library card located in the back of the book. Place the card in the card file box. The loan period is 2 weeks. Please return books to the library when they are due.
Library users can access online books using the library catalogue. To search for online items only, in the search box type the phrase: topic word(s) and electronic resource. You will retrieve records for online items. Click on a title and click on the electronic access link to get to the full text.
If the print item you have located in the catalogue is kept at your home campus, write down the call number and look for it. To borrow items located at another campus, fill out an Interlibrary Loan form and hand it to library staff.
If you need a book for a longer time, you can visit the library at any campus and ask staff to renew it for you, or do it yourself online.
Renewal limits: you can have up to 2 renewals on regular items (if nobody else has asked for them); there are no renewals on reserve items
