Library Short Loan items can now be borrowed for longer! Use of the Short Loans service by UOW students has dropped significantly in recent years. 2018 statistics show that from the 1,500 items held in the Short Loans collection, less than 200 titles were used regularly and it was further discovered that many of these regularly used titles are available electronically.
In an effort to increase the use of short loan items and provide the best outcomes for students, items previously held in short loans will be shelved with other print material and available for longer periods of time.
Subject text books, that are not available in a digital format, will be limited to a two-day loan.
