Loan Policy

You are required to abide by the following rules and regulations:

  • Borrowers are to produce their staff/student identification nametags when borrowing Library materials.
  • Books or Library materials may NOT be brought out of the Library until the loan has been recorded. Unauthorised removal of Library materials is regarded as a very serious offence.
  • Borrowers are responsible for the safekeeping and return of Library materials issued under their name.
  • Library materials borrowed must be promptly returned on or before the due date.
  • Library books must be returned via electronic (book drop) or manually at the circulation counter located at the library.
  • The normal loan period for books is two weeks. The Library, however, may fix varying loan periods for the different types of materials or users as it deems fit.
  • All borrowers must settle their overdue loans before they are permitted to borrow again.
  • Users may borrow library materials up to 10 minutes before the library closing time.
  • Borrowers are fully responsible for the materials checked out. It is also the borrower’s duty to ensure that the materials are returned before or on the due dates.
  • Failure to receive any notice sent does not relieve a borrower from their responsibility to return Library materials by the due date.
  • Borrowers are prohibited from borrowing on behalf of other users.
  • The Red Spot collection may be borrowed after 5.00pm and to be returned on the next day before 9.00am (Overnight loan book(s).
  • Student project reports may be borrowed for reference within the Library only.  Photocopies of these project reports can only be made with permission from the Librarian on duty.
