My Library Account

A new My Library Account box has been added to your NILE homepage.

mlaIt includes information on the number of books you have borrowed or are overdue, if you have any reservations waiting for collection and if you currently owe any fines. You can also follow the link to your full Library Account so that you can complete any further online transactions.


We hope that this integration will help users keep up-to-date with their library borrowing and avoid any unnecessary fines or account problems.
