Universities at Medway students can borrow a total of 40 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.
All items on your account will be automatically renewed unless another user has reserved the item. You will need to return the item by its due date.
When an item you have on loan is reserved, we will email you to inform you. You can use My Account on your university's LibrarySearch to see your current loans. It is your responsibility to keep track of what you borrow, but ask staff if you need any help with this.
