Book delivery service for alumni

As an alumnus, you can use the postal loan service to borrow library books from home or work.

Service fees

Loaned library books and journals are posted to alumni for free. However, alumni are responsible for returning the books and journals back to the library. You may choose to return items in person, or deliver/post the borrowed items at your own cost. 

Loan periods and renewals

Alumni initial loan periods last for one month, and you are entitled to one renewal if the item is not reserved by any other user. You may renew your loans before the due date.

Please remember that it is your responsibility to return materials by the due date. Penalties apply for overdue, damaged or lost items.

If you cannot return items on time, please contact the library as soon as possible.
