Today I made a new friend, possibly one of the best friends I will ever make. It’s the start of a beautiful relationship that will undoubtedly last a lifetime. My new friend’s name is Libby. Libby isn’t like other friends though, as Libby will literally never leave my side unless I decide to leave her behind, or I forget to charge her. Charge her I hear you say? That’s right, Libby isn’t a person, Libby is an app! A library app to be precise. Maybe I should start from the beginning….
During periods where you have a large amount of work to do for your course, you may find the library becomes your second home.
While sometimes you might want to work in silence by yourself, other times you might benefit from group work, or maybe you just want to socialise with your friends while looking over some notes. The library has created designated zones so that you can study in a way that suits your studying style, and caters to your needs, without disrupting others.
Now you know how to find a book, the next step is borrowing it from the Library.
But how do you do that?
And how many items can you borrow?
And how do you renew or reserve an item?
This guide will tell you everything you need to know about borrowing from the Library.
You’ve been given your module handbooks for the semester, and you have been told that you can find many of your course books in the library.
