In the past students, who have disabilities were entitled to extended loan periods if the DLSS assessment indicated that it would be beneficial to their studies.
Now that we have automatic renewals, this is no longer necessary - items are renewed automatically day-by-day until they are reserved by another borrower. Please make sure you regularly check your library account, and emails sent by the library, to see if items you have borrowed have been reserved by another borrower.
If you collect a reservation which has already been reserved by other borrowers, it will only be issued to you for 48-hours. This is so that we can satisfy demand for the item. If you have been recommended for extended loans, and you feel that you need longer than 48-hours to use the item, then please speak to a member of staff. In certain circumstances, at our discretion, we can extend the loan.
