Using the Library


External (non AUB) members may only borrow up to three Standard-loan books, 1 week loans may only be borrowed by members of AUB and DVDs may only be viewed in the library.

Standard loan books have a loan period of three weeks and can be renewed up to three times if not reserved by another user.

Unfortunately external members cannot currently reserve books.

You will receive an email three days before an item is due to be returned.

Fines for the late return of Standard loan books are 30p per day the library is open. These can be paid at the library counter.

Books can be renewed online using the My Loans tool on the homepage or over the phone but cannot be renewed if you have any fines.

Please inform the Library as soon as possible if you think you have lost any items. This will stop you incurring any further fines and give you two weeks to find the items.

If, after this two weeks, you still have not found the item, you will be asked to pay for a replacement.


External members with additional needs may make use of all of the resources available to AUB members.

External members are asked to comply with the same rules and code of conduct applicable to AUB members.
