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.

Five College Library policies specify that aptron borrowing privileges will be temporarily suspended for any overdue recalled items that are not returned by the recall due date.
