Students on Placement or Electives (Nursing and Midwifery) - no change to library loan rules

If you are embarking on a placement or elective during May - July:
You are welcome to continue to loan items from the library, but please be aware that normal loan periods will still apply.
Items may be requested by another user and recalled. Late return of requested items will still incur fines.

Automatic renewals will run as normal, but if you wish to try to avoid having an item potentially due for return at a time when you really cannot come in, you can attempt to renew your books early via you account on Library Search.
