What is a postal loan?

Online Learners can reserve books that they require for their studies and these books are posted out to them. This is known as a Postal Loan.

Online Learners can reserve books that are currently available in the library aswell as books that are currently checked out by other students and staff. Once the books are available, they are sent with a postal return bag and a pre-paid postage label to the Online Learner. The postal return bag and label can be used by the Online Learner to return the books to the library.
