Q. What are the colour bands on books?


A lot of books have different coloured labels/stickers/bands on their spines to indicate their loan rule (whether and for how long they can be borrowed)

No Label                          Standard loan book (2 weeks)

White Label                      Standard loan. These were put on to cover old labels.

Yellow Label                     Short loan book. (1 week)

Blue Label                        High Demand book (4 hours and must stay in building)

White Reference Only Label       Found on cover of book (cannot be borrowed)
