Library book loans during the vacation period

The Library closes at 17:00 on Wednesday 24 December for the vacation period and re-opens at 08:00 on Monday 5 January   

  • Please can you return any Library books that you don't need during the vacation period by their due date or by 13:00 on Wednesday 24 December at the latest. 
  • From Wednesday 17 December, 7 day loan books will be issued until Monday 5 January.
  • Please remember to renew your books via your Library Record when your books are due, and / or from the 5 January.
  • However, if your book gets recalled from Wednesday 17 December onwards, then it will be due back on Monday 5 January and you will not be able to renew it.
  • Please be prepared to return your book on the due date, either in person or by post.
    We do not recommend:
      • leaving Library books locked away in residences or your accommodation  
      • taking Library books abroad 
    • Library fines will still apply and you might not be able to renew if someone has reserved the book.
You can return books by post if you are away from the University to:
Public Services Co-ordinator
Library Services
Aston University
Aston Triangle
B4 7ET

Please note: fines of £3.50 per day are charged for overdue books which have been reserved by someone else. However, charges do not apply on the days that the Library is closed from Thursday 25 December - Sunday 4 January inclusive.


You can continue to use e-resources throughout the vacation period via your University username and password
  • E-books are available via Library SmartSearch - do a keyword search and then Limit by Material Type and select E-books
  • Please check the LibGuide for your subject if you need guidance on finding resources

If you have any questions in the meantime, please email library@aston.ac.uk
