Want more books?

We know you do - so we’ve (temporarily) increased our loan limit!!

As a trial for this term (between Monday 23rd April and Friday 22nd June), you can borrow up to fifteen items at a time, including up to four items on the same subject. They can be any combination of books, journals, videos, etc. If it works out well, we might adopt it more permanently (subject to regular evaluation).

This limit applies only to National Art School degree students (BFA, BFA Hons and MFA) and staff. The loan period will still be 2 weeks with 2 possible renewals.

Let us know what you think! Post a comment here so we can track your opinions more accurately. And spread the word!
