We regularly review our Library service provision to staff, students and external visitors. One aspect of the service which was reviewed via a benchmarking exercise during the latter part of last year was the loan allowance for all library users.

In order to improve the Student Experience all students may now borrow an additional 5 items. Research Postgraduate students may now borrow 25 items and all other students 15 items. Additionally Taught Postgraduate and Research Postgraduate students will still benefit from an additional 5 items during the summer vacation.
