Library loans and requests

A collection of books

If you are a Lancaster University Staff or Student, you can now borrow an unlimited amount of items on your library account. This is a temporary change for the foreseeable future.


Additionally, we have temporarily disabled request options for all users, to prevent anybody from incurring fines on recalled items. If you require a book that is not currently available to request, please place your request and we will try our best to source the title for you.


All loans are currently being automatically renewed on a regular basis so you do not have to worry about returning them if you cannot get to The Library. If you have books to return but do not want to come into the Library, you can use the book returns chute located near the Library entrance.
