These are items in high demand for teaching and similar collections of materials are
held in a number of other UCL libraries, including the Main, Science and Cruciform libraries.
In the Institute Library, books that are difficult to replace or badly damaged, particularly older Egyptology items that are too fragile to be left on the open shelves, are also held in the Issue Desk collection. You will need to ask library staff for these books, as they are held behind the Issue Desk in the Institute Library. Issue desk items can be borrowed by all categories of library users or consulted in the library by users with reference tickets, with the exception of Egyptology items with 'damaged' status. These are too fragile to be borrowed and may be consulted in the library only. It is not permitted to photocopy these items.
Loan periods and fines for short loan/issue desk books are:
|10.00 - 13.00||50p per HOUR, or each part of hour|
|13.00 - 16.00||50p per HOUR, or each part of hour|
|16.00 - 10.00 (next day)||50p per HOUR, or each part of hour|
(Short loan/Issue Desk items are due BEFORE 10am/1pm/4pm)
The due date and time will be stamped inside the book when you borrow it from the issue desk.
