Library Services & Patron Types

About

The table below gives an overview of which Library services can be used by different patron types. Patrons must have a current ID, and in some cases an additional barcode, in order to use these services.

For more information about borrowing items other than circulating books, Link+/ILLiad books, periodicals and government publications, see the borrowing information page. For more detailed information on other services, see the Library Services pages.
