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

This means that the book is required by another borrower and it may no longer renew beyond the current due date. 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, so the late return of books has a direct and unfair impact on fellow students and library users. You can request a book again as soon as it has been returned if you need to use it again.

If you return the recalled book later than the date stated your account will be 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.  You can use myLibrary Account in StarPlus to manage your Library Account, including checking the due dates of your loans, renewing loans, and viewing and cancelling requests
