What do I need to do?!
Congratulations on getting to the end of your course!
Please make sure that by 26/05/17 you have:
- Returned all your Library books
- Paid all of your fines
- Contacted us about anything unusual on your Library account (e.g. a book which you don’t remember borrowing)
This is because the Exam Boards working on your final results will check to see if your University account is all clear.
Any Library books or fines still on your account after this date could mean that your results are delayed and Graduation tickets are withheld. (This is also a good place to mention that all of your other University accounts need to be clear too, for example, Housing, the Multi Media Loans Centre, etc.)
If you have already left Winchester you can post your books back to us (Deputy Librarian, Martial Rose Library, University of Winchester, Winchester, Hants, SO22 4NR – we recommend Recorded or Special Delivery as this insures the books against loss in the post ) & we can arrange for you to pay your fines over the phone (Library Enquiries Desk: 01962 827051).
I’m in my final year, but my course doesn’t finish on 26/05/17!
This applies to: PCGEs, EYITT, Childhood Studies, Social Work, SCITT and School Direct.
Your Library account should automatically update to the correct end date for your course. If this doesn’t happen, please let us know so we can fix this (firstname.lastname@example.org / 01962 827051, or speak to us during our core opening hours). As with other students, you will need to make sure that your Library account is all clear by the time it closes.
Can I borrow books over the summer? Or in the future?
After 26/05/17 your Library account will close, meaning that you won’t be able to borrow books from us. We unfortunately can’t offer any borrowing access to Alumni, as our current students need our books too much!
If you are missing your fix of all things Library then don’t forgot that we are open to all members of the public for reference access to our books. Your local Public Library may also be just what you need; find yours via www.findalibrary.org.uk
What if I’ve got re-sits?
If you need to re-sit an exam or re-submit a piece of work, then we can extend your Library account past 26/05/17, so that you have access to Library resources. If this is the case please get in contact with us.
What if I’m starting a new course at the University in September? (For example, a Masters.)
You will need to return all your books and pay all your fines by 26/05/17. Your old Library account will remain closed and you will be given a new account once you enrol and complete Registration for your new course.
This does mean that before your new course starts you won’t have an active Library account & won’t be able to borrow. However, you will be able to access the Library books in the Library building, for reference.
Congratulations on completing your course! We hope that you have many great memories of your time as a UoW student and we wish you all the best for the future! #keepreading
