I checked a book out and it has to be returned in less than 3 weeks, why?

There are a few reasons why this is happening:

  1. The book is on a restricted loan e.g. on reserve, and must be returned within the specified time limit.
  2. The book has been recalled by another patron placing a hold on it. In this case the item will need to be returned although you are guaranteed a minimum of one week for items from the general collection.
