Short Loan Books

These are all subject to 'Total Recall' and must be returned to the Library by 9pm on Wednesday, 9th March.

Short Loan books not returned on Wednesday will generate fines of 50p per hour from 9am on Thursday morning.

Are you staying in Cambridge over the Christmas period?

If you intend to say in Cambrige for the vacation and want to ensure that the books you will need are not borrowed and taken away please let us know which books you'd like us to convert to Reserve by:

a. Filling in a Temporary Vacation Reserve Form available at the Issue Desk

b. Using our online Temporary Vacation Reserve Form

 We will then consider making these books into temporary Reserve Books for the vacation.

What will this mean? 

The books you suggest that are added to the Reserve Book collection willl be available for one day loans (renewable five times) during the vacation. This should ensure that the books remain in Cambridge and that you have easy access to them.
