Using the Kingston University library

iCat: online library catalogue

Kingston University's online library catalogue is called iCat. You can use it to access your library account to renew and request items.

Borrowing from the library

You can borrow items from the library using the self-service machines in the libraries. The number of items you can borrow depends on your membership.

Renewing items from library

Items can be renewed online via the iCat online library catalogue or in person at the self-service machines in the libraries.

Your library account

Your online library account allows you to see when your books are due back and when items you have requested are ready to collect.

Placing hold requests on library items

You can place hold requests on items that you cannot find on the shelf or are at other campuses or where all copies are out on loan.

Library fine rates

We send out a courtesy reminder by email one day before an item is due so that you have a chance to avoid paying fines on the item.

Facilities in our libraries

Our members can print, copy and scan in our libraries. We also have study zones to suit the way you wish to study.
