We will confirm receipt of your request within 2 business days. We will then respond within 5 business days to notify you if the material is eligible for return.
We can cancel an order if the material has not been shipped from the vendors, and only if we have return privileges with that specific vendor. Special circumstances will be dealt with individually.
Please note, we have an automatic 12-month back order cancellation date, unless we have been notified of an alternate date by the library. In most cases, material orders in our system that have reached 12-months from the initial order placement date will be automatically cancelled.
To avoid placing a duplicate order, please check the status of your order by contacting one of our Specialists, or by checking your order status on our website.
