Loans and Returns


Items for loan can usually be borrowed for 4 weeks. The return date will be written on a slip inserted in the book.

It may be possible to extend the loan period of an item, providing it is not in demand at the British Library. A further extension may require an additional e-voucher from QUB staff and students, and and additional charge for Associate members.


Inter-library loans should normally be returned to the library from which they were issued. If you are returning an item by post, please remember that you are responsible for its safe return.
