Recalled books

All items may be recalled before the original due date if a reservation is made by another user.

If you receive a recall notice by post or e-mail, please return the item.

Books can be returned to dedicated return box in the College Building foyer. Alternatively please  post books to this address by recorded delivery:

SOAS Library c/o Returned Books
SOAS University of London
10 Thornhaugh Street, Russell Square
London WC1H 0XG

Please contact with any queries about recalled books. 

Recalled books may not be renewed. Overdue recalled books will block your record and prevent all issuing and renewals.

It works both ways!

You can reserve any items currently on loan, and they will be recalled for you.
