Save a trip back to campus with our hospital returns service

BoxIf you have a problem returning your JB Morrell books, you can return them via the hospital libraries at York, Scarborough, Harrogate and Northallerton.

  • Hand in your JB Morrell books by the due date. The date of return will be taken as the date that you return the books at the hospital. Your books will be removed from your Library Account at this point.

  • Make sure that you give your JB Morrell books to a member of hospital library staff.

  • Keep the receipt that you will be given.

York-based students should note that JB Morrell Library books can be returned at the King's Manor Library, located in Exhibition Square in the city centre.
