You can return your books using our self-service machines.  In our 24 hour buildings, such as the Information Commons and The Diamond, you can return books at any time. You'll get a receipt or email as proof of returning your books.

Please try to return items to the site from which they were borrowed.

Follow the simple instructions on the screen and then please ensure that you place the book into the correct slot, either yellow or blue (it will tell you on-screen). You do not need to scan the barcode or open the book, just place it on the pad. If you encounter any difficulties please go to one of the information desks. Some older titles, especially from Western Bank Library, may need their barcode scanning or issuing by a member of staff.

Can I return my books by post? Yes.

Please send them to the library you borrowed them from. See the list of the library sites and their contact details.

The book will remain your responsibility until it has been received at the library, so it is a good idea to send them by recorded delivery.
