You can borrow a long loan item for as long as you need it unless someone else reserves it.

If another customer reserves an item that you have, we will send you a notification when the item is due back and a date will display in the Due field in My Account e.g. Due: 19/09/19.

You will be given 7 days to return a requested item during term time, but please return it sooner if you can.

If you do not return it within 7 days, you will start to accrue an overdue charge of £1.00 per day up to a maximum of £15.00.


We also need to check periodically that you still have the items on loan, so the maximum loan date is the longest period you can have an item for before you need to bring it back to the library. If no one else wants it you can borrow it again.

  • For students, community and NHS users the maximum loan date is 20 weeks.
  • For staff the maximum loan date is 52 weeks.
