Renewing loans

Newington College Senior Library uses the Concord Infiniti library management system.

Infiniti allows students to self-renew items for an extra 14 days. Students can use this feature twice before they will have to visit the library and ask for an extension. Items which have reservations placed on them cannot be renewed manually.

Students can access Infiniti at school and from home. Students will need to use their Newington credentials (studentnumber@newington.nsw.edu.au) and SSO password to access the self-renewal platform.

Digital content items must be renewed via the borrowing platform, e.g. Bolinda, EBSCO eBooks, etc.

 

Reservations

Students can also reserve items which are currently on loan through Infiniti.

Once a reserved item has been returned, an email will be sent to the student alerting them to the availability of the item.

Items are held for the student for 7 days only. If the item is not claimed after those 7 days, the reservation will be canceled and the item will be returned to the shelf.
