Reservations, Renewals, and Recalls

Default Default.


Readers may reserve up to 5 loaned items through Primo@Lib or at the Circulation Counter. Academic staff and students may reserve any library materials except hourly loan items such as Course Reserves. Other borrowers may reserve books only. When the item is returned to the Library, the requester will be notified. If the item is not collected within 7 days, it will be passed to the next requester or returned to the shelf.



Borrowers may renew loans for 2 additional loan periods. They may renew loans either online through Primo@Lib or at the Circulation Counter by presenting all loans to the Library staff. No item may be renewed if it has been requested by another library user.


Academic staff and students are entitled to recall items that have been on loan for over 2 weeks. Recalled items must be returned within 7 days. Late return will be treated as an overdue and the borrower is liable to a fine.

If the recalled item is not returned within 28 days after the new due date, borrowing privileges may be suspended and the borrower will be charged for the replacement cost and overdue fine. The item will continue to remain the property of the Library after the replacement cost has been settled by the borrower.
