Library notices

Borrowers receive reminder, overdue, recall and request collection notices daily by email. UWA students and staff must use their UWA email address to receive these notices.

Please note that notices are sent as a courtesy only, and that borrowers are responsible for the return or renewal of loans regardless of whether notices are received or not.

It is recommended that borrowers check their email account regularly for notices. Your loans may also be checked by accessing My Library Account.
