New arrangements for the return of books and the revised policy on overdue fines:

  • Items returned within 5 working days after face-to-face classes resume on campus will have their overdue fines waived. This applies to library loaned items with due dates on or after 29 January 2020. Please ignore all overdue notices being sent through the library system automatically to your institutional email. If in doubt, please contact us.
  • You are advised to renew your loaned items that are not yet due in My Library Record so as to avoid receiving any overdue notices.

You are encouraged to utilize the library e-collections for study and research from off-campus. You can view the e-textbooks and access e-books and e-journals located at Discovery Search. Research databases are also accessible via A-Z list e-databases
