Most loanable items renew automatically, and you only have to return books that someone else has reserved. You will receive automatic emails from the Library letting you know which items have been renewed and which items you need to return.

You can also renew your books online via the ‚Äč 'My Account' function on the Library Catalogue or by using our 24 hour automated renewals phoneline.

To use the automated renewal line call 020 8392 3250.  You will need your library barcode number found on the back of most student ID cards next to the barcode.

Please note that if a renewal has been unsuccessful this might be because:

· The item has been reserved by another borrower

· You have reached your renewal limit

If you experience any problems when renewing your books please contact the Library and IT Enquiries on 020 8392 3770 or email Please quote your library barcode number.
