Borrowing outside hours of attendance

Borrowing is based on self-service so that students and staff can borrow from the collection and return books without a Librarian present.

The search terminals are also available so users can search for items in the Library catalogue and find these in the Library.

Users register items at the self-checkout terminal prior to exiting the Library. Remember that you always have to have your student card with you to be able to borrow books.​


Search courses are usually arranged by the course coordinator. If you need help to find books and electronic material, contact a Librarian.​
