Our click and collect service will allow users to request items from the main lending collections for loan. Requested items will be retrieved, issued to the library user, and made available for collection within 5 working days of receipt of request.
Requests must be placed via the Library website using MIESearch - there is a 'click & collect' button in each record. Only submitted Click and Collect forms are processed.
To ensure the safety of all Library users and staff the following measures will be implemented in the Library:
This appointment based system will be in accordance with physical distancing requirements and will ensure equitable access to a limited number of study spaces in MIE Library.
This plan is developing in line with government and Institute direction and is subject to change. We will use social media channels to keep our students and colleagues up to date on any developments.

The Library has rolled out a free book return service for graduate students to return their books by post and also offered the book return facility (bookbin) at MIE reception.
