Circulation & Access Services: Requests

This guide relates to the borrowing polices and library services offered by the Alma Jordan Library at the St. Augustine Campus of the University of the West Indies


  • Requests for items currently on loan can be made at the Loans Counter.
  • When those requested items are returned, they are held for a maximum of three days.
  • An item request does not change the original due date, but it does prevent the current borrower from renewing it.
  • An item can be recalled only after it has been on loan for a minimum of 7 days.  If a book has been recalled, a new due date is assigned and fines are charged until the item is returned. 
  • Overnight/3hour loan items cannot be requested.
