Borrow, renew and return - your library loans

All University of Nottingham libraries are currently closed in with the latest guidance from the UK Government.

You do not need to return your books to the library during this time.

We are cancelling reservations so all library loans will continue to auto-renew whilst our buildings are closed.

Due to the exceptional circumstances, we will waive library fines for this period.

Your loans will only be due back if someone else requests them after we re-open. You will be given plenty of time to return items.

Visit the Libraries Support Hub for more information about your library services.
