How do I place a hold or recall an item?

Holds and Recalls

Holds can be placed on any item with the exception of lockers, equipment and reserve items. In the library catalog, search for the desired item. Click "Request" in the "Get It" section. Remember to log into your account to access this option.

If the item is currently checked out to another patron, a hold will reserve it for you once the item is returned. If the item is available, Circulation staff will place it on the hold shelf for your convenience. You will receive an email notification when the item is available on the hold shelf. It will remain on the hold shelf for 10 days. 

A recall will reset the due date for the item to five days from the date the recall was placed. Items are eligible for recall two weeks after the original check-out date or a renewal date. Fines for late recall items are double the typical rate. Recalls can only be placed by library staff.
