Recalls, Returns, and Fines
A recall is a shortening of your loan period. If your item is recalled, your item is due back sooner than the original due date and cannot be renewed.
Return your items to any UMKC Library: Miller Nichols, Health Sciences, or Dental. As a courtesy, we will send you a reminder email five (5) days before the due date.
Daily late fines are not issued.
Recalls on ILL material can be issued by the lending library at any time. They will recall a book when it is needed by one of their users or for course reserves.
Items not returned on time may jeopardize your library privileges. Furthermore, UMKC Libraries can face penalties when items are not returned to lending libraries on time.
If your item is not returned by ten (10) days after the due date, you will be billed for replacing the item.
You must return a recalled book by the shortened due date. Contact the ILL department for assistance if you still need the item.
Your library and Pathway accounts may also be blocked if your material is overdue. This will block you from checking out/renewing library items, registering for classes, and requesting transcripts.
If you return an item after you have been billed, you may still be responsible for the replacement fees if UMKC has already paid them to the lending library.
