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 4-week loan ite,s. They are clearly labeled with a Yellow 3 Day Loan Sticker on the spine. Once borrowed, they can be renewed automaticallu up to 10 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. If you don't return a recalled 3-day loan book on time, you will have fines of £2 per day.
