Renewals and returns

Can I renew Document Supply loans?

Most items can be renewed.
Email at least three days before the loan is due. Renewals cannot be requested online. 
NB: all items borrowed are subject to recall at any time.

Returning your Document Supply loans

Please take care of all items borrowed from other libraries and ensure that you return any item by the due date specified. 
The Library will be charged for lost items, and may be charged for very overdue items. If you lose an item, or fail to return items on time, then these charges will be passed on to you.
The British Library currently fixes these charges between £70 - £150.
