St Anne's College Library: How to Borrow, Return & Renew

Borrowing Quick Facts

                             picture of book 

You can borrow up to 999 books!


Watch out for books with orange 'Confined to the Library' labels - you can't take these out unless they say they are only confined for a particular term or the Long Vac.

You can't take out journals/magazines e.g. The Economist.

The loan period is either the whole term or the whole vacation, unless someone else recalls an item you have out.

How to Borrow & Return Items

To Borrow:

  1. Place your books in a pile on the desk where it says 'place items here'.  The scanner can check multiple books at the same time.
  2. Press 'Issue' on the screen.
  3. Hold your Bod card under the red light to the right of the screen and scan your barcode when the green light appears.
  4. Check that all of your books have appeared in the list on screen and then press 'Finish'
  5. If a book doesn't appear or appears in red then ask us for help.  If we're not around then take the book anyway and note down the problem on the notepad provided.

To Return:

Tim Gardam Building - Please return books with shelfmarks 000-600s (except 340s Law) in the book returns box in the reception area.

Hartland House Library - Please return books with shelfmarks 700-900s, 340s (Law), TE, TR, Welfare, Jenkins & MR to the Librarian on duty or leave them neatly on the staff desk and we will check them in for you when we are next around.

Renewing a Book

To see what books you have out on loan and to renew them log on to your SOLO account (top right corner of SOLO web page) with your Single Sign On (SSO).

Tick your books and click 'renew'. Make sure all the titles have a new due date! If the due date hasn't changed it usually means someone else has requested that book so you must return it as soon as possible.

We can also renew books for you at the staff desk. It's helpful if you bring your Bod card but there's no need to bring all your books with you!

Borrowing DVDs

We have a collection of DVDs (and a few Blu-rays) located in the corner of the entrance area in Hartland House Library. If you want to borrow any of them you will need to come during staffed hours as the discs are kept separately from the cases.  We also have DVD drives that you can borrow and plug into a laptop.

            You can borrow up to 4 discs...

                    ...for 1 week...

             ...and renew them once...

Overdue DVDs are charged a fine of £1 per day so make sure you return them on time!
