Returning books
 

Returning your library books is even easier than borrowing them. If the Library is closed just drop them into the book bin outside the Philip Robinson Library and staff will discharge them the following day. If the Library is open you can use this self returns machine here on Level 2. The machine is fully automated and will discharge your books and sort them so they are ready for shelving in just a few seconds. 

Take a look at the video below to see it in action! 

If you have a problem with the self returns machine or receive an unexpected error message take your books to the Library Help desk where staff will return them for you. Don't forget, you can always check the status of your loans when logging in to Library Search.
