Books loans are for 28 days and will renew twice automatically giving a period of 3 months before you are asked to return the books. Thereafter if you want the book for longer please speak to the librarian or email SAMSLibrary@sams.ac.uk. You may be asked to return a book after the initial 28 days if it is requested by another library user.
SAMS students or staff may reserve a book that is already out on loan (as long as it is a book from our Library) by sending an email to SAMSLibrary@sams.ac.uk and quoting the details of the book. Please note reserved books will only be held for a limited number of days before going back into circulation. You will be sent an email when books are available for collection.
You will receive an automatic email when books are due to be returned. If you no longer require a book please return it as soon as possible to make it available for other people to borrow. If you need the book longer you can usually renew it (if it is not reserved).
There is a Book Return box located in the Sheina Marshall Building study room. Books can be returned there, or to the shelves just inside the 1st floor library door.
