Each book or other item is given a loan period eg 4 weeks, 1 week or 1 day depending on how in demand it will be. Some items may be in very heavy demand at certain times of the academic year. 

If an item has a short loan period eg 1 week or 1 day, it is easier to share access to that item between more people.

Sometimes, we are unable to buy additional copies of in demand items, so make the copy we do have 1 day loan.

Information about the different loan periods and the fines for late return of these items is in the link below.
