Book Reminders and Overdues

Library users are responsible for returning the books they have out on loan on or before their due date. As a courtesy reminders and overdues are generated automatically by the Library’s automated management system and are sent by e-mail, however these should not be relied on. Books can be renewed as long as another library user has not requested it and as long as it has not become overdue. If it is overdue it should be returned directly to a member of the Library Staff.
