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.

Postal returns will be counted from the postmark date, rather than the date we receive it.

We quarantine returned books for three days before making them available for loan again. They will remain on your library account during this time.

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.
