Book recalls during the Easter Vacation

We are approaching the assessment and examination period when there is increased demand from students completing their studies.  In order to give fair access to books, we will continue to recall loans that have been reserved by other users.  You may be asked to return books during the Easter Vacation (30th March – 17th April 2020).  Please check your university email regularly.

If your recalled loan becomes overdue,  we will block your Library account so that you cannot borrow or renew anything until the recalled item has been returned.  If you still do not return the recalled item, you will be invoiced for a replacement.  Blocked accounts can only be restored during staffed library hours.

We appreciate that you may not be able to get to the Library in person to return the book so please post it back securely to the address below.

    • Hi Aashutosh,

      Sorry for the delay in my reply. We have been racing to keep still with non-stop changes of late, as you might imagine.

      Since the Library closed, your books will now automatically renew and you can safely ignore any recall messages you might have received.

      If you need any help or advice, or if you receive any further follow-up emails concerning the recall of these books, please email or chat to us online through the Library website and we will be happy to resolve any unexpected issues.
