Borrowing and returning 

Click and Collect/Click and Post

You can request items and arrange to collect them from Philip Robinson Library or Walton Library during collection times. 

If you’re off campus and still need to borrow items, we can post items to you with Click and Post.

Returning items

If you’ve borrowed books and finished with them, and you are travelling onto campus to study or to pick up Click and Collect items, you can return them at the following places:

  • Philip Robinson Library - book drop located beside the front door
  • Medical School - book drop located at building main entrance and outside the Library entrance
  • Marjorie Robinson Library Rooms - return bin located inside the building (only accessible if you have pre-booked a study space)
  • Dame Margaret Barbour Building - return kiosk located on the ground floor

If someone else has requested an item you have on loan and you are unable to return it, please let us know via Library Help
