Borrowing items

You can borrow items from the Library using our self-service kiosks.

You can also check your library account and renew your loans on the kiosks, as well as pay any library charges on the Self Payment system. For those of you who are not based in Portsmouth, we offer a Document Delivery Service for distance learners.

Your loan records are monitored by Library staff, and you will be notified if there are any problems, or if your loaned item has been requested by another user.

Our standard Loan length is four weeks though high demand items are restricted to a 7 days.

Providing no-one else wants your loans, we will automatically renew your loans after three weeks, and we will email you confirmation of any renewed loans and their new due date.

If someone else had reserved one of your loans, we will not be able to renew your loan and will  email with details of the loans we cannot renew - but you will still have a week before it is due to be returned.

Where and when?

The self service kiosks are available to use any time the Library is open. You'll find them in the Library atrium and on the first floor.
