Borrowing library books

There is a list of required and additional texts, for each module of your course, in your Student Handbook.  Most of these books will be available to borrow from the library. The number of copies in the library is limited, so early borrowing is a good idea!

Borrowing a Book

What do you need?
You just need your student card.  Your student card is also your library card, and you are automatically a member of ITB Library when you start college. 

Just come to the library desk with your student card and the book you wish to borrow!

How many books can you borrow at a time?
Students can borrow up to 6 books, or items, at a time.  As well as books, you can borrow DVDs, CDs, reports, calculators, headphones etc.

How long can you borrow items for?
Most text books can be borrowed for 2 weeks at a time; these are long loans

In order to make the library books accessible to as many students as possible, some books are short loans.  At the start of each term we ask your lecturers to recommend core texts for short loan.  The first copy of each title is library use only; these books cannot be borrowed but they are always available in the library.  All other copies of the title are short loans; they can be borrowed for 1 week at a time.

What if you want a book for a little longer?
When a book is returned late, or after the due date, there are overdue fines.  Avoid this by renewing your books on or before the day that they are due to be returned.  We will renew your books up to two times so long as no other student has reserved them and they are not late.
