Renewing  

You may renew items a maximum of three times by phone or email. If you then still need the item, you will need to bring it to the Library to renew it in person. If an item has been reserved by another member it will be unavailable for renewal. 

Online renewals

To renew online go to the Library catalogue and enter your membership number in the top right corner and select ‘Set up PIN’. Once your PIN number is created, go to My Account in the toolbar, where you can renew your items.

Overdue loans

Reminders will be sent to you if you have overdue items. If an item is overdue by more than six weeks, you will receive an invoice from the Library for the replacement cost of the item, together with a £20 administration fee. This fee remains payable even if the item is subsequently returned.

Requesting items not at the RSM

An inter-library loan service is available for books and material not held in the RSM’s Library collection. The Library staff will source the majority of requests from the British Library, with material sourced from other institutions as necessary. 

A small charge is made for the inter-library loan service, calculated according to the delivery method. Charges start at £11.50 for items delivered by email. 

To request an inter-library loan, contact the Library enquiry desk by emailing library@rsm.ac.uk.

For full details about the charges view the inter-library loan price list.
