Here are the libraries' lending policies that apply to all users : http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/as/policies.htm
When you check out an item you have a guaranteed three weeks with the item whether you are faculty, staff, or student (unless an item is rush recalled in which case the item will be due right away).
Items that are recalled have been requested by another user through the catalog. When an item is checked out and no other copies are available a "Request" link becomes available and when it is clicked another user may recall the book from you.
If it is requested by another patron before you have had the book for three weeks you will have at least three weeks with the book. If the book is requested after you have already had the book for three weeks you will have 10 days to return it. This may mean that your due date has changed. The new due date that is stated in the recall notice and viewed online through your account overrides your original due date. The item can no longer be renewed.
Please be sure to return the item on time. Overdue fees for recalled items are $1.00 per day and these items will quickly be replaced if not returned. You can see our fine schedule here : http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/ps/Circ/fines.html and our replacement policy here : http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/ps/Circ/lost.htm
All of our policies are in place to ensure timely access to all our materials to all patrons.
