Useful Tips

You can always renew your loans yourself via your Library Account providing they have not been reserved by another borrower.

If there are multiple copies of a reserved item and someone else reurns a copy before you, then you can renew yours via your Library Account.

If you still need an item reserved by someone else then you can reserve it yourself once you have returned it.

If the books you need are on loan always place a reservation. This will ensure the books come back for you.
