|Hold & Recall Services
Users may place a hold on a checked out item at the Library Online Catalogue. The hold quota for CUHK teaching staff and students is 10. Users will receive a Hold Pickup Notice when the item is ready for pick up. The item on hold has to be checked out in 7 days, or it will be cancelled automatically after that.
The Hold Service may lead to a recall of the checked out items and shorten their due date if they are on loan for 30 days or more. The new due date will be shown in users' Library Record at the Library Online Catalogue and in the Recall Notice sent to the users. Late return of recalled items will incur a fine at $5/item/day, and the renewal and placing hold activities of users will be affected as well.
It is the responsibility of the users to report the most up-to-date correspondence. To ensure receiving important notices from the Library without delay, users could add/update their email address via their My Library Record in the Library homepage.
