The number of items you can borrow depends on your status:
Undergraduates 25 items Postgraduates 40 items
Staff 50 items Subscription readers 10 items
Admitted readers 6 items Students and staff from elsewhere 6.
Please note that audiovisual materials can only be borrowed by University of St Andrews' staff and students.
There are a range of loan types
4 week loan
Undergraduates and External Members = 4 weeks loan with up to 4 automatic renewals
Staff and Postgraduates normal loan = 4 weeks loan with up to 20 automatic renewals
3 Day Loan
3 days with up to 10 automatic renewals
Short loan (no recall/renewal)
These are high demand books which can only be borrowed by students and staff of the University of St Andrews. These can be borrowed for 4 hours and overnight. Short Loans cannot be renewed, you must return the item and re-issue it. Fines are charges for overdue short loan books - 50p per hour or part of an hour.
If a 4 week loan item is recalled from you, the due date will change to 7-days for the date recalled, unless the due date is less than 7 days, when the due date won't change. You will be notified of the recall by e-mail, and recalled books cannot be renewed. If a 3-day loan item is recalled you'll receive an email, and won't be able to renew it. Fines are charged for the late return of recalled items, at £2 per day.
