Renewals of loans are permitted unless a hold on the book for another user has been made. Holds are indicated under the STATUS column of the Location Box for any item. An item may be renewed up to four times if it is not required by another person.
Renewals may be done by students in person at the desk, or online by clicking on "Requests" in the eWITS OPAC: if a hold has been placed on the item, or it is already overdue, the renewal will be rejected.
Postgraduates and staff may also renew items by telephone.
Fines are charged to all users, regardless of status, for any items which is returned after the due date stamped on the item, and which has not been renewed. If a renewal is made after the due date, a fine will be charged for the period of time between the due date and the date the item is renewed. Fines are charged per day or per hour, according to the category of loan, and are incorporated into the computerised loan circulation system.
