Library Loans

Overdue items

If one of your library items cannot be renewed, a message will be sent to your university e-mail address. Items must be returned by the date stated in the e-mail.

What happens when items become overdue

An overdue notice will be sent by e-mail and a block will be placed on your library account.

Having a block on your account stops you borrowing or renewing until the overdue item is returned (including laptops and some media production equipment).

What if I no longer have an item?

Please take notice of any e-mails from the library. If you have lost an item, or think you may have already returned it or left it in the library, you should let us know as soon as possible (library.loans@solent.ac.uk).   

What happens next?

If items are not returned, further reminders and details of replacement costs are sent to you by e-mail. Your library account will continue to be blocked.

If items remain overdue you will receive an invoice from the University's Finance Service.

Please note: Failure to pay this invoice on time may result in additional charges.
