Summer Loans

Just a reminder that you may borrow Library items over the Summer but if they are requested by someone else you must be prepared to return them.  

You can return books in person at any time - if the Library is closed please use the 'out of hours bin' to the left of the building.

You can post items back - we recommend using a proof of postage service.  Keele address labels are available next to the self service terminals at the Campus Library.

Textbook Rescue 2016


We are now collecting any unwanted textbooks for a project called ‘Textbook Rescue’.

We will gather up unwanted textbooks from students who no longer need them, and at the start of the next academic year we will distribute them free of charge to new and returning students.*

Look out for the donation box at the front of the Library foyer.

*If we receive core text book donations which would benefit large numbers of students, we may add them to Library stock. If we receive an item we can’t use, we will dispose of it ethically according to Library policy.

Thank you for your generosity.

Important information for finalists

This message applies to anyone who is graduating in July 2016.

If you are Graduating this July you must return all books on loan by Wednesday 1 June 2016. 

Books not returned by this date will be regarded as missing from stock and the Library will send you an invoice for the replacement cost(s).  

There is a fines amnesty at present so we will waive all fines except those that accrued on a reserved item.  You can settle your  Library debts by phoning 01782 734159 or by coming in person to the Service Counter.

Any debts not settled by Friday 10 June will be passed to Finance to chase for payment. 

We trust that you have been satisfied with the services you have received from the Library Team over your time at Keele.  

If you would like to suggest how we may improve the Library service for future students please contact Ruth Chell, Customer Services Manager on r.chell@keele.ac.uk

New Charlotte Sneyd Display in the Library

The Library holds Sneyds of Keele Hall papers dating from the fourteenth century to the twentieth century, comprising deeds, manorial, estate, legal and business records, as well as personal correspondence, music, watercolours and sketches.
