Recalled items

The items you have on loan can be recalled by another customer at any time, including during vacations.

If another customer requests an item that you have, this will show immediately when you check your Library account. We will email you asking you to return the book. You can also check if a book has been requested using the Leeds Uni App.

You will be given 7 days to return a requested item, but please return it sooner if you can.

If you do not return a requested item on time, you will be blocked from borrowing any more items until it is returned.

We will send you reminders to let you know the item is overdue.

If after several reminders you have not returned the item, we will invoice you £50 for the cost of replacing it. If you return the item you will not have to pay the replacement charge.

We will send you an email to let you know if the recall on your item has been cancelled and it will then be automatically renewed until someone else requests it again.

If you have any doubts about your ability to return a recalled item on time, please contact us.
