OLC Services

Books may be borrowed when presenting your student card at the OLC desk, where it will be issued electronically. The return date will be indicated on the date sheet in the book. A maximum of two books may be borrowed over a two week period and may be renewed if they have not been reserved by someone else. Lost and damaged books must be paid for. Reference books, reserved project books and the daily newspaper may only be used in the OLC.

Students are expected to maintain a quiet atmosphere in the OLC, considering those who are reading or doing college work. Socialising happens outside the OLC and group discussions are to be done wot the minimum disturbance to others.

All textbooks must be returned at the end of a course. Lost and damaged textbooks must be paid for. No textbooks are issued for a following course if any books are outstanding.
