The Library recognises that students and other library users may be reluctant to cross picket lines during strikes in order to return borrowed books that are due during this period.  There may be additional anxieties that fines will accumulate on overdue books.  We would like to support students in this position but also ensure that those who continue to use libraries have access to books that they require to continue their studies, particularly those in high demand.
  • Students are reminded that they can renew their books online in iDiscover without coming into a library
  • They can also be renewed by telephone (for the main University Library ring 01223 333030; for Affiliated faculty and departmental libraries please see contact details in the directory below)
  • If you have already reached the maximum number of online renewals we would be happy to renew your books by telephone
  • Library staff will also be pleased to advise by telephone or email if you need to return books that have been recalled by another reader or have questions
The above arrangements apply only to the main University Library and its Affiliated libraries listed at   Please note that this list does not include all faculty and departmental libraries, who should be contacted separately for advice.
