How to Borrow

You must have your campus card with you to borrow.

Use your campus Card to borrow at a loans desk in second floor, or the Self circulation machine beside the general service desk.

Use computers in library to search the Catalogue to find the location, call number and availability of an item.

  • Books which status is “LIB USE ONLY ” cannot borrow.

  • Check the shelves and sorting areas for items that are Available or RECENTLY RET'D (recently returned).

  • Books which status is “IN PROCESSING” or “IN CATALOGING” cannot borrow temporarily. You can click here to submit the application if you want urgently.

  • Please ask library staff for help if you cannot find an item on the shelves. To report a missing item, fill in the Missing Item Form at general service desk.

  • You can recommend purchasing or get it through Interlibrary loans or the library consortia of Guangzhou if our library do not collect the item which you want.

Renewals

Most loans have to be renewed within ten days before due date via My Library or General Services Desk.

The new loan period is counted since the renewal operation day.

Learn about renewal periods at Circulation Rules. The number of renewals for each item is once.

You cannot renew an item if:

  • the item has been recalled;

  • your card is blocked.
