Borrow more books

The Stirling Campus Library loan allocation has been raised to 100 books for academic staff and research postgraduates. The increased allocation, which applies only to “long loan” books is available now, and the books may be borrowed until August 2010.


This is part of the planning for the Interim Library Service, which will operate from June 2009 through to August 2010 while the main part of the building is refurbished.

There are two reasons for encouraging additional borrowing:


  1. It will allow researchers to have access to books in their research areas which don’t meet the usage criteria for selection into the interim collection.
  2. Because all loans are subject to recall, it will increase the number of books which will be accessible over the interim period. This might be particularly helpful for dissertation students requiring material not on reading lists.


So please make use of this additional allocation. There are two conditions; firstly that recalled books be returned if another user requests them; and secondly, keep the rest of them till August 2010 as we won’t have room on the shelves in the meantime.
