You may renew the loan of a book via the catalogue from MyLibrary or you can take it to the Service Enquiries desk before the due date.
You may also renew a loan by phone [call 8313 7312] -- quote the Library barcode number from your ID Card and the title of the book.
A loan may not be renewed if another user has requested the item.
If the item you have on loan is requested by another user, the loan period is reduced to one week and you will be sent an email notice asking you to return it. Please make sure you check your University email address regularly.
Books recalled for the Reserve collection must be returned immediately.
If you have overdue items, you will receive reminder notices, then you will be sent an invoice for the cost of replacement of the item, plus a non-refundable handling charge of $30.00 (GST exempt) per item. High-use items, e.g. recalled or reserve items, will be invoiced quickly.
If you are planning to be absent from the University, please check your account under MyLibrary and return or renew the loan periods of items that will fall due during your absence. It will help us if you arrange for your mail to be monitored while you are on leave so that Library notices asking for the return of items that are urgently needed by another user, or for the Reserve collection, may be attended to promptly.
Except for Reserve, items may be returned to any University of Adelaide library. Reserve items should be returned directly to the library from which they were borrowed.
All registered library users have an account on the Library's system known as MyLibrary. You may use it to find out about your loans and requests. There's a MyLibrary help page if you would like to know more.
Login to your account on the Library website through the MyLibrary option by typing in a valid username and password.
University of Adelaide staff and students should use their University ID and Password.
Other users should use their Library Barcode as Username, and Last Name as Password.
If the book you want is out on loan you may 'Request' it. This
means it will be kept for you at the Library Service Enquiries desk when it is returned and
you will be informed when it is available for pick-up.
To request a book, find its record from Library Search and check if it
is out on loan. If the copy you want is out, sign in and select Request and
follow the instructions.
Full details are on a separate web page: How to Request that a book on loan be held for you.
When the book is returned from loan we will send you an email Library
notice telling you that it available.
