Renew your library items
New library catalogue
We'll be upgrading our library catalogue on Thursday 16 July. The new catalogue will integrate fully with the rest of the library service website. It will enable you to:
- Log in once to renew, place multiple requests and review your account
- Refine your search results using search limiters
Catalogue requests will be unavailable
To allow time to install the new library catalogue we regret that customers will not be able to place requests using the online catalogue between 4pm Saturday 11 July and Thursday 16 July.
