Recalls

icon  An item is recalled when there are no other general collection copies available.

  

The due date is not guaranteed, because in order to share access to our resources, the Library reserves the right to recall items if they are needed by other clients. This may result in the due date being reduced.

All users are guaranteed a minimum 2-week loan period for general collection items.
Recalls for items are sent out the day after a hold is placed, so it is possible that you may have a reduced loan period.

Items that have been recalled or have a hold placed on them are unable to be renewed. Fines will apply for all overdue items and if recalled items are returned after the new due date, the fine will be double the original fine amount per day. i.e. a fine of $1.00 per day will increase to $2.00 per day for general collection items and a fine of $5.00 per day will increase to $10.00 per day for 7-day loans.

If you return or try to renew your books on the day they are due or when they are overdue you may find that someone has very recently placed a hold on them and there has not been time for us to send out a recall.

If an item is not available via the Catalogue, try BONUS+ for a copy from another University Library and collect it a few days later.
