HOW CAN I ACCESS LIBRARY CATALOGUE

The XJTLU Library’s Online Catalogue can be accessed from any on-campus computer connected to the Internet via URL http://opac.lib.xjtlu.edu.cn. You may login by using username and password (the same as the username and password for your university email account) and proceed to check your current holdings, due date, renew books, and reserve any material you require. 

 

HOW DO I FIND THE BOOKS I NEED?

Use the Library online catalogue http://opac.lib.xjtlu.edu.cn; Check the status to see if the book is available or on loan; If the book is available, note down the location and classification number to find the book you need on the shelf; If all the copies of the book you need are out on loan, you can reserve a copy.  

 

HOW CAN I BORROW AND RETURN BOOKS?

◆ You are encouraged to use the self-service machine located on Level 1, 4, 8 to borrow and return items using your university ID card.

◆ You are also welcomed to take the items and ID card to  the Level 3 Library Service Counter to borrow and return.  It is your responsibility to know your books are due back. Fines are charged on the late returned books.

HOW CAN I RESERVE A BOOK?
