Borrowing

We are very keen to develop independent library users at Chancellor’s. All students and staff are entitled to use the facilities. We use a computerised catalogue and issue system (Eclipse) and all users are allocated a personalised borrower number.

Staff and students can use Eclipse to search the library catalogue from any computer in the school.

Any library items that are not currently available, may be reserved. Students and staff are welcome to make suggestions for library stock, request forms are available in the Library.

Students may borrow 4 items at a time. This may include 1 DVD or 1 CD.

You are able to keep:

  • Books for 21 days
  • DVDs for 3 days
  • CDs (audio books and music) for 7 days

Overdue Items

Students are responsible for ensuring their books are returned to the library by the due date. The due date is stamped on the card kept inside the book. Students are sanctioned via the Chancellor’s positive behaviour system when their books are overdue and continue to be sanctioned until the book is returned, paid for, or replaced. Behaviour points are added weekly for overdue books. Click here to see our overdue items policy.
