Borrowing library books over the summer vacation

Book with pages fanned open

Automatic renewals will still work over the summer vacation, so long as no one requests the books that you have borrowed. If someone does request a book that you have on loan, you’ll need to return it by the due date - so keep an eye on your University email, and your library account (by logging into FindIt@Bham). If you post an item back to us, please make sure you get proof of postage.

Please be considerate and only request a book if you will be able to collect it. You’ll still need to collect a requested item within 48 hours - in some cases we may be able to hold your requested item for longer; please contact the library at which the request is being held.

If you have any questions about your loans and items you have requested, please visit one of our libraries or contact us.
