Books now auto-renew!


What happened to the 12 week loans at Colchester?

Previously, our collection was divided into 7-day and 12 week loans. Now, all books display a due back date in 7 days time.

This doesn't mean you'll have to bring the book back any sooner than before, as books that can be auto-renewed will keep renewing for a year, or until someone else requests the book. You'll be notified by your Essex e-mail if you need to bring a book back. 

This means our system is more efficient, without reducing your time spent with the books!
