What is a recall? (Requests for materials that are checked out)

What is a recall?

A recall is a request to have a borrower bring back a semester book before the due date. Once a book is recalled, the person who has borrowed the book will have three weeks to return it. 

How do I recall a book that someone else has checked out?

Sign into the Catalogue, find the record for the item you seek, then use the "Request" option. The book will be held for you on its return.

If your book is recalled

If you have checked out a book and another library borrower requests (recalls) it, you will receive a notification. To see if another library user has recalled any of your books view your library record.
