Automatic Renewal
Providing that another user has not requested your items and provided that you have no outstanding fines, items will be renewed automatically. Please be aware that different maximum renewal periods apply depending on whether you have borrowed a USW or a Merthyr College item (see below).
Library users must check their online My Account (see below) and USW email account regularly as this is how library staff will communicate with the user about borrowed items.

Maximum renewal periods are:-


High Demand   –   Until recalled by another user
1 Week Loans   –   Until recalled by another user

Merthyr Tydfil College

Short Loan   –   Not renewable
1 Week Loans   –   Maximum renewal is for 10 weeks
4 Week Loans   –   Maximum renewal is for 4 months
