Library notices

As a library user you receive reminder, overdue, recall and request collection notices by email. UWA students and staff must use their UWA email address to receive these notices. Other patrons will receive these through their nominated email address.

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

It is recommended that you check your email account regularly for notices. Your loans may also be checked and renewed by accessing My Library Account. Any overdue items on your account will be marked in orange with a clock icon and the due date/time:
