The book you have just issued will already have been requested by someone else when you borrowed it and so was only issued for a short period.

Books already requested by someone else when you borrow them may have a shorter loan period of:

  • 2 days - University & NHS staff; Postgraduate Research students; Full-time taught-course students; External Borrowers
  • 4 days - Part-time & distance learning taught-course students, and also students with Additional Support requirements

If you still require this book you can re-request it.  The next person will only have it for a short period and you will get it back once the other requests have been satisfied.  Please see the webpages regarding the library's guide to borrowing
