Universities at Medway students can borrow a total of 20 items on their library account. Most items can be issued on our self-service machines, but certain items (such as inter-library loans obtained via the document delivery service) will need to be collected and issued from the Helpdesk. Borrowing requires your student or staff ID card, which is also required for entry to the library.
Most items are four-week loans or 7-day loans. Some items are reference, which means that they can only be used in the library.
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.
