  • All items can be recalled. 
  • You will receive an email notification with 7 days to return the item before it becomes overdue.
  • Take note of due dates through your Library account and monitor your email to avoid overdue items.  
  • If you are going away, it is good practice to return all items that won’t be able to be returned within 7 days.
