Library Policies

The Campbell Edwards Library is open to all Stirling Theological College students, and students of the University of Divinity. Stirling Students also have borrowing rights at all other libraries of the University of Divinity (which they are bound by each library’s borrowing policies).

Ex-students, Churches of Christ Ministers and members of the general public are free to use the library, but a membership fee applies to gain borrowing rights. Please contact the Librarian for rates.

Borrowing:

Undergraduate students may borrow up to 8 books at a time for a period of 3 weeks.
Post-grad students can borrow 12 books for 4 weeks.

Renewals:

To allow for equitable access to resources, renewals are not permitted.

Returns:

During business hours, books can be returned directly to the library. If the library is closed, there is a chute located at the back entrance of the library – Opposite the units, up the stairs.  Please avoid lending library books or relying on others to return books.

Overdue Books:

Overdue reminder emails are sent periodically, however the onus is on the student to return items on time.  Excessive or persistent overdue books may result in library privileges being suspended.

Copyright:

Students are bound by current copyright regulations when copying from library books.  A copy of the regulations can be found near the photocopiers.
