New loan limits for borrowing books at UCL Libraries

By Jes Cooban, on 20 April 2016

AncientlibraryalexAs part of the UCL-IOE merger, last year UCL Library Services carried out a benchmarking exercise investigating loan limits at UCL, Institute of Education and other UK universities. The outcome of this resulted in recommendations to increase our student limits.

From the week beginning Monday 18th April 2016, the new loan limits for students will be:

Undergraduates: 15 books (was previously 10 books)

Taught postgraduates: 15 books (was previously 10 books)

Research postgraduates: 25 books (was previously 20 books)

Please note that:

  1. The number of issue desk loan items that can be borrowed at any one time has not changed – this remains at 3 books/teaching collections to ensure fair access to our most pressured resources.
  2. Postgraduate and Research Postgraduate students will also still benefit from an extra 5 loans during the summer vacation.
