To improve your access to, and experience of using Library print books, we’re making some changes! The first of these is to loan types. On Tuesday 12 July 2022 we’ll be making all 7-day loan books standard loans so you can borrow them for longer – nearly 40,000 item records will be updated to become ‘standard loans’.
Standard loans are either 6 weeks for staff and research students, or 3 weeks for all other Library members with borrowing rights.
We hope this will improve your experience of borrowing books and help you manage your Library account more easily.
Changes to book loans are underway
What will happen to my loans?
All 7-day loan books that are currently on loan will automatically be made standard loan and renewed. Please check your account for your new due date(s).
There are many other changes to come, all designed to make borrowing easier. Keep up with further information about updates to Library loans and allowances via our social media, our blog or get in touch.
Your Library Team
Arrangements will be different for non-UoR visitors to this Library from 18 April until at least August 2018 whilst we operate from two buildings: the Library Building (no 2 on the Whiteknights campus map) and the URS Building (no 33 ).
SCONUL Access users
Users of the SCONUL Access scheme for students and staff from other universities:
- SCONUL members in Bands A, B and C: You can borrow materials from the Library Building and use study spaces in the URS Building. Please call at the URS Building Information Desk to collect your Library card.
- SCONUL Band R full-time undergraduates from other institutions: You may view and copy stock in the Library Building, but you may not borrow or take material to any other building. You will be able to use your own resources in URS Building study space.
Visiting as a member of the general public
You may view and copy stock in the Library Building, but there will be no study space here. We are sorry, but whilst Library services are relocated to URS, we will be unable to provide guest access to e-resources as a ‘walk-in user’.
Unaccompanied children will not be permitted in the URS Building, in line with current rules on children in the Library building. Unfortunately, we will be unable to accommodate school visits until after August 2018.
See why Library study space moves to URS in a previous news post. For further information, see our Library Refurbishment Project page.
