Maximum loan period, which is subject to recall, is the longest period that an item may be borrowed and renewed by an user before it must be returned to the Library. Except for items that are on short loans (e.g. Course Reserve, Journals and laptop etc.) or have been recalled/requested by other library users, the maximum loan period is calculated as:

 

Maximum loan period = Initial loan period x 6

Examples:

  • Undergraduate students:  30 days x 6 = 180 days
  • Postgraduate students: 60 days x 6 = 360 days 
  • Teaching staff (Terms A): 120 days x 6 = 720 days 

Please note once a recalled item is overdue all items under a user’s account will not be able to be renewed until the recalled item is returned. For details of loan privileges of different user types, please visit: http://www.lib.cuhk.edu.hk/en/use/borrowing/borrow
