High Demand collection explained
What is the High Demand collection?
Each Library has a High Demand collection of print books and audio-visual material that have been identified by Unit Coordinators as essential readings for UWA units. The High Demand collection has different borrowing conditions than the Main Collection.
- High Demand collections are located on the ground floor of each library, near the Information Desk.
- Loan period for all items in the High Demand collection is three hours. Loans can be renewed an unlimited number of times to a maximum of six hours.
- Reminder notices regarding due date/time are sent via email (to your student email address) AND via SMS if you have provided a mobile phone number to the University. You can opt out of SMS notices by replying STOP, but you cannot opt out of email notices.
- A maximum of two High Demand items can be borrowed by a library user at one time.
- Items can be borrowed overnight if borrowed after 4:30pm. Loans will be due the following library open day before 9:30am.
- Items borrowed overnight cannot be renewed after return the following morning.
- Items should be returned to the library where the item was borrowed.
- Borrow and return High Demand items by using the Self Check machines. This ensures you are aware of the due time, and you can personally confirm the item has been removed from your borrowing record when returned, so you don't accrue any fines.
- Do not return High Demand collection items through a returns chute during library opening hours as delays in processing could mean you accrue fines.
- Bookings and requests are not available for High Demand items.
