Borrowing: Requests & Recalls

Need help? AskUs!

Due to Covid-19 our libraries in NSW will not be recalling items until further notice. 

What is a recalled item?

The due date of an item on loan to you may change if the item is requested by someone else. You will receive a notification via email that the due date has changed. You will be expected to return the item to the Library within 7 days. Recalled items cannot be renewed. 

Request to borrow an item that's currently on loan

To request an item, it must meet the following criteria:

  • You must be currently enrolled
  • A copy of the item must be held on the same campus that you are enrolled at
  • Currently checked out (on loan)
  • Standard loan item only
  • If there are others copies available, you will be unable to perform the request

Search for a library item in the Library Catalogue to ensure that the Library holds a copy.

Recalling an item

Standard loan items that are on loan can be requested by other students or staff for recall. When this happens for standard loans the loan period is shortened to 7 days.

The current borrower will receive an email stating that the item has been recalled and is due within 7 days. Items that are not returned within those 7 days will incur standard fines.

How to collect requests

When the item is returned by the current borrower, you will be informed via an email to your student/staff email address.

Please collect the item from the Library.

For Fremantle borrowers, the item will be held for you to collect within three days. 

For Sydney and Broome borrowers, the item will be held for you to collect within seven days.
