Think Recall

If you’re going away over Easter we hope you enjoy a lovely break, but don’t forget the Library will be open daily throughout and that our loan rules continue as normal throughout the vacation period.

This means for the many students and staff who choose to stay in Exeter during holiday periods we are here and open to provide help, support, study space and the resources you need. But if you are planning to take our books away with you over the break please keep in mind the following:

How do recalls work? 

Books on loan to you can be requested by other Library users, when this happens they are “recalled.” You will get an email about this and a new date by which to return it, so it is important you check your email regularly if you are borrowing stock during the holidays. Recalled books cannot be renewed and may be due earlier than the original due date. With normal loan books, you should get a week within which to return the item. This should be sufficient time to return the items by post if necessary.  Library books should not be taken overseas.

Our recall policy exists to ensure fair access to our stock for all library users, so don’t forget if the books you need are on loan you can recall them at any time of year. Learn more about how to place reservations here.

As always if you need help, or have any questions about managing your library record do please get in touch:
