Extension to Library loans
- To support your learning, all books and DVDs currently on loan which were due back on or later than 3 February 2020 have now been extended to Wednesday 23 September 2020. This date may be extended further if necessary.
- We regret that we are unable to process Inter Library Loan requests until further notice, as The British Library has temporarily suspended its national interlending service.
