Short loan collection: introduction

  • The Library tries to purchase e-books or stock multiple copies of books that are most in demand. However it is not possible to buy enough copies for everyone to borrow a copy at the same time. At times of heavy demand even the one week loan period is inappropriate. For this reason lecturers advise us which books are likely to be most popular and these are put into the Short Loan Collection.

    We have two loan types in the collection: Short loan items which can be borrowed for a day (due back midnight the following day) and High Demand items which can be borrowed for 4 hours.
