Borrow and return items in this section

Borrow items

Borrow items at the self-service machine before you leave. This includes any requested items you are collecting.  

We will email you a receipt that contains the date and time when your item is due back.

Return items

Place your items on the Automatic Return Shelf. They will be checked in and available to others immediately.

We'll confirm your returns on the screen beside the shelf. You will also receive a confirmation email.

  • Where possible please return loaned items to the library from which they were borrowed. This helps us make them available others sooner.
  • The Engineering and Sciences Library General collection has moved to the Social Sciences and Humanities Library. As a result, the external return chute at Dorothy Hill Engineering and Sciences Library has closed.
