If you have a book on loan that is requested by another library user the status of the book will become recalled.

This means that the book is required by somebody else and will no longer renew beyond the current due date, or a fortnight (whichever is soonest). You will need to return the book to any library site on or before the due date.

Your library books will only be recalled if they are required by another user, and the late return of books has a direct and unfair impact on fellow colleagues. You can request a book as soon as it has been returned if you need to be able to read it again as soon as possible.

If you return the recalled book later than the date stated your account will become frozen until the item has been brought back.

The status of recalled books can change at any time so it's always worth checking your Library Account online for up to date information.
