Changes to loans at Academy Library

February 1, 2017 by

due-dateAs part of our work to align Academy Library’s service offer to that our Single Hospital Service partners, we’ve been looking at our loan periods and renewal permissions.

As from today, users will now be able to take up to 10 items on loan from Academy Library for a period of 4 weeks. These items can then be renewed up to 3 times before they need to be returned to the library.

We still have out of hours access for all staff and students, during which time you can use our self-service terminal to issue, renew and return your books. Remember, you need to activate your card to use this service.

If you have any questions about these changes, just get in touch with one of the team via academylibrary@manchester.ac.uk or call us on 0161 291 5778.
