Universities at Medway students are entitled to borrow a total of 16 items on their library account. Most items can be issued on our self-service machines, but certain items (such as inter-library loans, dissertations and study loans) will need to be collected from the Welcome Desk and issued to you by the staff there.
Many items are available to borrow for four weeks (ordinary loans). Others are identified as 7-day loans (also known as short loans) or overnight loans. Some items are for reference, which means that they can only be used in the library where they are located.
All items on our shelves are listed on our catalogue. For details of how to use it, see the information on using the library catalogue.
