Recall notices are sent through mail or email as a courtesy. Failure to receive or acknowledge a recall notice does not absolve a borrower from the responsibility to return the library material. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to monitor their library records through the online renewal feature online.

Items not returned by the recall due date may be billed the replacement cost and a $10.00 overdue fine per item. The replacement cost is cancelled when the item is returned undamaged.

The recall guideline is in effect all year long, including semester breaks, vacations, sabbaticals, authorized leaves, etc. All library users, including faculty and University staff, are expected to comply with the recall policy. Patrons can return materials via the exterior book drop when the library is closed.

This guideline is in place to ensure that all Nelson Poynter Memorial Library patrons have timely access to library materials.
