Borrowing, Reservations & Renewals: Borrowing and Returning

Library Account

Your Library Account lets you see what you have borrowed from the library, renew your loans and make reservations. It is part of the Library Catalogue and it is available 24/7. 

Students: your username is your student number

Staff: your username is your staff number with 9 at the beginning, e.g. 9123456


To borrow items from the library you will need your student/staff ID card. Just take the item you would like to borrow to the library desk or self-issue machine to issue it to your Library Account.

Ask at the library desk for how many items you can borrow.

Loans are for three weeks or one week depending on the item.


Return your items to the library desk or through the self-issue/return machine and follow the instructions on screen. You can return items to any campus library. If the library is closed look to see if there is a book return box outside the library.

Quick search for books, eBooks and DVDs.
