Can I still borrow books over the summer holidays?

Yes, if you are a member of staff, or continuing student then you can continue to borrow from the Library over the holidays.  Borrower Privileges and Loan Periods remain the same.  If you are borrowing books, and plan to take them away from St Andrews then please bear in mind that it is still possible that a book may be recalled, in which case you would need to return it, you can return books by post to:

University Library

University of St Andrews

St Andrews

KY16 9TR

We recommend you ask for a receipt or proof of postage if returning books by post.

You can renew your books if you need them for longer, and no-one else has requested them.

Please check your University email address regularly - we'll send you reminders when your books are due back, and let you know if any of the books you've borrowed have been recalled.
