The University of Massachusetts Amherst


As a Research Library, access to materials is critical to our mission. All borrowed books are subject to Recall with 10 days notice. If you have an item recalled by another user, you will receive a Recall Notice. You are guaranteed a minimum of at least 14 days with any book you check out.

Note: Recalled items must be returned to the UMass Amherst Libraries within 10 days. Fines are levied for items not returned within 10 days of a Recall Notice

For overdue recalled items the overdue fee is $2 per day up to a maximum of $30 and a Notice of Fine Due on Late Recall will be sent. 

Five College Library policies specify that borrowing privileges will be temporarily suspended for any overdue recalled items that are not returned.
