We will now automatically renew 4-week-loan items for you* if no one else is waiting for the item, provided your account is clear of overdues or fines. Where possible items will be renewed up to 9 times, as for 3-day-loan auto-renewals.
You do need to check your University e-mail account as we’ll tell you if we have been able to renew the item or not. You will also get an e-mail if the item is requested by another reader, so regular checking is advised. Please do return items you have finished with, though, as this makes them available for others to browse on the shelf and avoids them being misplaced or lost.
We hope this enhancement will help you to manage your loans and lead to fewer fines.
*Auto-renewals will be standard for all University Library members who are entitled to long loan periods. If your standard loan period is one month this will not apply.
