There is no charge for the service and the cost of posting items to you will be met by the Library.
If you return items to us by post you will be responsible for the postage and packing costs.
If you live or work at a distance from the University or find it difficult to visit in person, we can help you with access to the University of Southampton (UoS) Library stock by:
Within the UK: we can post long loan and one week loan stock.
Internationally: we can post long loan stock.
We aim to dispatch postal loans / requests within two working days of receiving your request.
Long loan items and one week loan items can be borrowed until they are requested by another user or recalled by the library. Login to your library account to see when books need to be returned.
Short loan items (course collections) must be returned by 11:00 am the day after being issued.
Items can be returned by post - we recommend you have proof of postage. Alternatively, you can return items to the Library in the usual way.
All long loan and one week loan items are automatically renewed. Short loan items (course collections) cannot be renewed and must be returned to the issuing library.
