The library will need to be informed of your new finishing or hand in date by your school or department so your right to borrow books can be extended beyond the end of term into the Summer vacation.  This data is not automatically fed through from the Student Portal to the Library Management System.

Academic schools have been asked to copy the library into any PEC outcome emails, which will give the library details of summer vacation extensions in order for your library account to be manually adjusted.

Please do not forward your PEC to the library.


If your library account has not been adjusted, here is what to do:

Ask your school administrators to email Library Help with the following title and information:

Title:  Student Extension Confirmation for Academic year 2023/24

Email text must include the following information:

  • your name and student number
  • confirmation you need the ability to loan library books extended to a new hand in date (as agreed and what is stated on your PEC)

Once we are in receipt of the above information your library membership will be adjusted manually and your library books renewed.

Your smartcard is valid until the end of September of your graduation year so access to buildings, online library resources and your NUIT accounts should continue seamlessly.
