Borrowing books over the Easter vacation


Your books and other loans will still renew automatically over the Easter vacation, as long as no one reserves them. If someone does reserve 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 check your library account regularly 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 reserve a book if you will be able to collect it. You’ll still need to collect a reservation within 48 hours (except over the University closed period), but if you need longer, please contact the library it’s being held at. In some cases, we may be able to give you longer to collect it.

Nothing will be due back over the University closed period, between Friday 19 April and Wednesday 24 April inclusive.

  • 48-hour loans issued on Wednesday 17 and Thursday 18 April will be due back on Thursday 25 April.

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