Lending Services

The UWU libraries offer library lending service, with comprehensive ‘back office’ support. Valid members of the UWU library can borrow books /items based on their user category. A large number of electronic resources are also available online.

How to use it

Simply visit our library during opening hours.  You will need a university identity card to access the lending facilities. The UWU Online Catalogue accessible via opac.lib.uwu.ac.lk will allow you to find collections and to check the availability of item in the library. 

Our experienced circulation staff will help you during normal staffed hours. They are located at the circulation Desks.

Scheduled Reference/ Short Loan Collection

The UWU library has a separate collection of books along with lending books that are in heavy demand. This is called the Scheduled Reference /Short Loan Collection.

Short Loan items can be found in the lending books stack area and may be borrowed for a period of 01 day. If borrowed on a Friday they are due back by the following Monday morning.
