University Library Suggestions

Online library accounts display loan due dates in MM-DD-YYYY format. This should be changed to the Australian DD-MM-YYYY for consistency.

The online library accounts display loan due dates in the American MM-DD-YYYY format. This should be changed to the Australian DD-MM-YYYY for consistency and to avoid unnecessary confusion. The email reminder for due loans for instance uses the DD-MM-YYYY format to display due dates.

Thanks for your Suggestion.

Thanks for your Suggestion. We are aware of the issue of the due date for books appearing in the American format, with the month it is due back appearing before the day. We apologise for any confusion this may be causing regarding the return dates for your books.
Both the UWA Library support staff and the system vendor are working on a fix for this issue.
We do still send out reminder notices, a week before the books are due back, so hopefully you will not miss any deadlines whilst we rectify this issue. Sara on behalf of UWA Library
