Brynmor Jones Library (BJL) or the Keith Donaldson Library

all times as you may need to refer to the ID number on the card
when contacting the Library by phone, email or via the Internet.

of the whole book, whichever is greater, and not more than one
article from a single issue of a journal for each user.
