Borrowing Books - Click and Collect

We are offering a Click and Collect service for physical library books. Simply find the book you want in OneSearch, and place a request for it.

We will issue the book to your library account and send you an email letting you know when you can collect it. Please wait until you have received this email and check the library opening times before coming on campus. We will ask to see your Cumbria Card before we hand over the books so please remember to bring it with you.

If you wish to collect books on days where you are not timetabled for teaching, please help to support our safety efforts to reduce the number of people on campus by only remaining on campus for the amount of time it takes to collect the books from the library.


If you are isolating you must not come into the library. Ask a non-isolating person to collect the book(s) for you and email from your student email account with the name of the person who will be collecting. When the person collecting for you comes to the library we will ask for their name and the name of the person whose books they are collecting. Books are issued to your account for two weeks so there will be no need to return items during your isolation period.


Returning Books

See Returning Books and Equipment for information on where to return your library books, teaching practice resources and media equipment.


Learning at the University of Cumbria is not just about libraries themselves: it is everything that happens in them and outside of them. Our libraries are the hub of learning activity across our campuses. The wide range of online and physical resources we hold will give you the critical advantage in achieving your academic goals.
