LJMU loan service during exam re-sits

With the ongoing refurbishment of the Grove Wing of the Sydney Jones Library, we have an agreement in place with the libraries of Liverpool John Moores University to support our students doing examination re-sits.

Students who wish to borrow items from LJMU should visit one of LJMU’s libraries with the following:

· A completed LJMU External Borrower Registration Form (PDF).

· University of Liverpool card.

· A passport sized photograph

LJMU will then produce external borrower cards for our students.

Students can borrow up to 4 items and the facility will be in place until Saturday 6th September 2014.

For more information, please ask at the Sydney Jones Reception or contact Christine Haddock, Library Services Manager, Library Services, Liverpool John Moores University: c.haddock@ljmu.ac.uk
