Can’t remember which Library books you previously borrowed?

We’re all busy people these days with a thousand and one things to think about.

So, when you’re struggling to meet tight submission deadlines for your assignments, it can be really easy to return your Library books without writing down the reference details. Or maybe you used a really informative text a couple of months ago and would like to borrow it again, but can’t quite remember the title…..

Worry not! Leeds Beckett Library has a new feature available to students. You can now check your loan history going back to September 2015, the start of the current academic year.

Here’s how:

Log in to the Library Catalogue using your MyBeckett login details. Go to the Self-service tab, then click on Review My Account. If you’ve borrowed any books since September, you’ll see a list of books on screen, which you may either want to request again, or simply make a note of the reference details for use in your studies.

Amazing! No more racking your brains to remember those titles or authors……

And remember that if you need any in-depth help with resources for your subject area, you can always contact your Academic Librarian – you can find their details by going to the Subject Support page on the Library website, then choosing your particular subject. You can either ring or email your Academic Librarian, or you can make an appointment online.

You can, of course, always contact us here at Offsite too – tel (0113) 8126779 or email offsite@leedsbeckett.ac.uk, or why not try our online chat?

We’d love to hear from you!
