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.

Did you know you can access past examination papers online? You can search in two ways: use either your module code (e.g. ANTH1002) or the module title, OR use the A-Z list of departments to find your department. Papers are then arranged by level of study and year set.

System outage disruption to Library Services : 11th – 13th April

By Jes Cooban, on 6 April 2016

A system outage will take place between Monday 11th and Wednesday 13th April next week, which will cause disruption to a number of Library services. Details on the attached poster and given below.

It will not be possible to:

  • Make or cancel reservations

  • See current item availability
  • Pay fines

Self service machines will be unavailable, but we will be able to issue and return items for you through our off-line circulation system.

Apologies, but we will not be able to see any details of your account off-line, so cannot answer questions about the books you have on loan, etc.

Some holdings information (but not including current availability) can be obtained through COPAC

Special loan arrangements:

NO books will be due for return or renewal while this outage is taking place

3 hour loans: from Friday 8th April at 4.00 p.m. until 10. 00 a.m. Thursday  14th April
