Summer vacation loan information

Find guidance on library loans over the summer vacation.


Vacation loans will start from 9am on 4 June 2022. Items issued or renewed after that date, which have not been requested by other users, will be due on 3 October 2022.

During the vacation, we will be operating a 15-day recall period in order to ensure that if you need access to items, they are obtainable and that if an item is recalled you have sufficient notice to be able to return it.

Items which have outstanding requests when they are loaned will also be issued for a period of 14 days. Any items you have requested will be held for seven days.

If you would like us to hold them for longer, email library@sheffield.ac.uk.

If you are finishing your studies at the University of Sheffield, please return all of your library material before you leave.
