The majority of the collection is available for borrowing for a period of 14 days, and cannot be renewed.Students may borrow a total of 2 items at any one time.

Overdue Items
Any item returned past its due date incurs a fee of $2 per day. Student will be notified of any overdue items via email. Failure to pay the fine will result in your library card being blocked and you will be unable to borrow further items. The fine will continue to increase until the book is returned. Once the fine has been paid, you will be able to borrow items again.

If an item is returned later than one month after the borrowing date, it will be considered lost, and you will be charged the full replacement cost of the book. For damaged items, a flat fee of $100 will be charged, which covers the processing fee incurred by the library.

Your Student card can be obtained from the Library and acts as your library card. You can use your Student card to borrow books from the library or for printing and photocopying. The replacement fee for lost Student cards is $10.
