We are planning changes to our external borrower scheme as part of a wider review of library services aimed at improving resource availability for UEA staff and students. In order to allow for a smooth transition to the new scheme cards applied for from 1 March 2013 will run for a reduced period at a reduced fee. Full details can be found here
