New Loan Periods and Borrowing Entitlements:
Bangor University staff and students

We’ve reviewed and simplified our standard loan periods and increased the number of items most library users can borrow at a time.

From 25th August 2016, entitlements will be:

No. of items Standard Loan Period
Undergraduates 15 4 weeks*
(Masters & Research)
30 4 weeks*
University staff
(Academic & Support)

External Borrowers 6 2 weeks

Please remember that all loans are subject to recall, and due dates will be reduced if a borrowed item is wanted by another library user.

*Standard loan items which have not been recalled by another user will be auto-renewed for a further 4 week loan period 7 days before they are due (NB auto-renewals do not apply to loans to external borrowers).
