Recall is a request, sent from the library circulation department, to return an item before it is due. Students, faculty and staff may recall items by placing a request in person at the Library Services desk (map).

  • Recall requests can be placed 14 days after the original checkout date.
  • A recall notice is sent to the patron who currently has the item checked out (usually via email).
  • Recalled items that are not returned by the date specified in the notice will accrue daily fines.
  • A notice to the patron requesting the recall is sent when the item is returned.
  • Items returned will be held for 7 days.
