If the item you need is checked out to another borrower, you may request the item by placing a hold on it. This reserves the item for you when it is returned. You may place a hold from your library account or by requesting assistance from the Circulation Desk. When your item arrives, you will be notified by email. If your item is not picked up within 7 days, the hold will expire and the item will be returned to the shelf.
Sometimes items may need to be recalled for use by the library or other patrons. In these cases, a recall can be placed on the item. If a recall is issued for an item you are currently borrowing, you will be notified by email of the new due date for the item. If the item is not returned by the new due date, the item will incur a fine of $5.00 per day.
Patrons may request a recall for items that have been out for longer than 3 weeks and are not due back for an extended period of time. If patrons would like to request a recall on an item, they should contact the Circulation Desk.
Please note that not all patrons may place holds on books or request recalls. See Access Policies for more detail.
