Q. Can I borrow books from another campus (Colchester, Southend, Loughton)?

Answer

Colchester: You can borrow books from our Loughton campus library as you would from Colchester.

Our library at Southend is set up a little differently, you will need to visit the Student Services desk in Southend and request a new student card be printed with the Southend Library barcode on the back.

At the moment, items from Southend cannot be requested to collect at Colchester.

Loughton: You can borrow books from our Albert Sloman Library at Colchester in person or you can request an item online to be delivered to Loughton. 

Requested books take approx. 2-3 working days to arrive. 

Our library in Southend is set up a little differently, you will need to visit the Student Services desk in Southend and request a new student card be printed with the Southend Library barcode on the back.

At the moment, items from Southend cannot be requested to collect at Loughton.

Southend: You can borrow books from both of our other campuses (Colchester and Loughton) either in person or by requesting them to be delivered to Southend. 

You can request a book to be collected at the Southend Campus by finding the book in the "Search Library" box, this will take you to the University of Essex Catalogue. Once you've found the book you want to borrow, click on the "Request it" link next to the book. 

If you physically go to the Colchester or Loughton Campus' and borrow a book it will show up on a separate account to the books that you have borrowed from Southend. Please return these books directly to Colchester or Loughton Campus, or let the library in Southend know that you borrowed them directly from a different Campus. The account that the books show up on can be logged into using the link below: 

Books borrowed from Loughton or Colchester will show up on a separate account to Southend books which you can find here.
