Recalling books

From 2 May 2022, it will be possible to recall a book that’s out on loan to someone else, and they’ll have 5 days to return it. Recalls enable books to move faster between different people who might need them in a tight time frame.

Returning books

Please return books that are due. You will be notified via email if there is a change in due date for any of your books on loan, so make sure you’re checking your student email address regularly. Fines may be incurred for overdue books.
