Did you know…? – Taking library books abroad

Airplane_Landing_Taking items abroad

Did you know how to seek permission to take library books abroad?  

For books from The Sir Duncan Rice Library- speak to a member of the Subject and Enquiry team (offices on Floors 4-6), who will then ask you to complete a form. Ideally, go to the office on the floor nearest to where the book came from- for example if you have mainly Art books from Floor 4, then go to the Floor 4 office or for Engineering books go to the Floor 5 office. 

The library staff member will check if it is suitable for the books to be taken abroad and finish filling out the form with you. The important thing to remember is that all our books are subject to recall, so if this happens while you are abroad then you will need to post the item back.   

For Taylor (Law) or the Medical library, please speak to a member of staff at the respective Issue Desks.  

Happy travels!
