Renewals, Recalls & Returns

Recalling Books

Patrons may recall an urgently needed library book that is currently checked out to another patron using the online Recall Request form. The borrower will receive notification that their item has been recalled and must be returned within 14 days from the date the notice is sent. Upon return of the book, the patron who recalled the item will be notified. The recalled item will be held at the requested AskUs desk of choice for ten days.

Due to their special nature, the following items cannot be recalled:

  • Course reserve items.
  • Short-term loan items (e.g., DVDs).
  • Items that have been declared lost or damaged.
  • Items on hold awaiting pick-up.
