If you have an item on loan which has been requested by another borrower, we will contact you and ask you to return it to the library. We will give you one week from the date of this communication to return it, after which the item will become overdue. Please note recalled items that become overdue incur a higher rate of fine.

The item will be marked in your account as recalled and a new return date will be allocated.

Once returned, you may request the item again if you still wish to read it in which case the next reader will only have the book for one week.

All standard and 1 week loan items are subject to recall at any time, including during vacations.

Please note that emails are sent to all Queen's staff and students reminding them of approaching due or return dates.  Emails are also sent to notify library users that material is overdue, or to request the return of material which is in demand by another reader.  Library notices for Queen's staff and students are delivered to university email accounts.
