Recalled books

All items may be recalled before the original due date if a reservation is made by another user.

If you receive a recall notice by post or e-mail, please return the item no later than the new due date shown. In this way you will avoid overdue charges and contribute to a more efficient reservation service.

If you return recalled books the self-return machine will not accept them. Please return them to the desk during staffed hours, or place them in the book bin next to the self-service machines. Please do NOT put on a trolley.

Recalled books may not be renewed. Overdue recalled books will block your record and prevent all issuing and renewals.

It works both ways!
You can reserve any items currently on loan, and they will be recalled for you.
