Responsibilities

You must report lost or damaged items immediately.

You must pay to replace any lost or damaged items. You will be charged by the library that owns the item with the replacement cost. This may include an admin charge. Overdue fines must be paid in addition.

You agree to receive notification of reserved items available for collection and due items. You can opt in to receiving library service announcements from your library, please let us know.

Trust IT policies, local library policies and copyright legislation must be abided by.

On the last date of your placement, employment or eligibility to use the service, all items on loan must be returned and all fines paid.

Changes to the BASE Library Service

As a response to Covid-19, some BASE libraries have now closed their counter services (all library closures will be posted on the Locations page). All library teams are still providing an enquiry service and can be contacted by email and phone if their counter is not open. Reservations are not available, however you may browse the catalogue and access e-resources. Items on loan have been automatically renewed and will not incur a fine. Most libraries are not providing new member registrations. More information on current service can be found here.
