Borrow, reserve, renew

As a current or alumni member of the University of Sunderland, you are able to borrow a wide range of resources to support your learning and research.


My Library Account

Borrowing and returning resources

Issue and return your resources quickly and easily using the self service machines in both libraries. All you need is your University campus card then follow the instructions onscreen. You do not need your campus card to return. Remember to keep your receipt as this will show your due dates for each item and is your confirmation that the return has been successful.

Items should be returned on or before the due date to avoid incurring fines. To help you avoid fines, we send courtesy reminders to your University email account three days before the due date. We will also send emails reminding you about overdue items.

Renewing your items

You may renew items up to five times, provided they are not reserved by another customer. You are able to renew items on the self service machines in the library, or from anywhere in the world, by logging into your library account via the library catalogue. 

Managing your library account 

My Account is the section of the Library Catalogue where you can view your current loans, renew, pay any outstanding library charges, view and cancel your reserved items and interlibrary loans. You will also see your borrowing history, which can be very useful if you would like to revisit a particular book or have forgotten to record the full item details for your assignment reference list or bibliography.  My library account log in


Ebooks do not have to be issued and do not count towards your borrowing allocation. They are accessible at anytime, anywhere you have internet access and an electronic device. Access ebooks via the library catalogue and log in with your University username and password. 

E-resources are only available to current staff and students. We are able to offer limited in-library access for users such as Alumni.
