Library Services Platform LSP – OCLC

There will be a freeze on borrowing books, requesting books (the ‘Place a Hold’ option) and interlibrary loan requests from 18th July until 20th July whilst we upgrade from the old system to Library Search. The self-service laptop cabinet will be unavailable during the upgrade period, but if you need to borrow a laptop please speak to Library staff and we will be able to help.
