Q. I've noticed there are some 3 Day Loans - what are they and why have they suddenly appeared?

As the name suggests, 3 Day Loan items can be borrowed for 3 days!  They are located on the shelves alongside Normal Loan and Multiple Copy (7 Day Loan) items. They are clearly labeled with a Yellow 3 Day Loan Sticker on the spine. Once borrowed, they can be renewed up to 3 times, as long as no-one else makes a request. 


Holds can be placed on items already on loan using the Recall option on the item record.  Holds will be kept on the Holds Shelf in the Short Loans area for 4 days. Fines will be charged for overdue 3 Day Loan at 50p per day, increasing to £1 per day if a Hold/Recall has been placed. If you request a 3 Day Loan please collect it as soon as you can.
