How do I place a hold or recall on an item?
A hold request will flag a book to be held at the Circulation desk for the requesting patron when it is returned to the Library. Recall requests generate a notice to the holding patron which mandates that he/she return the item within four days. A returned held item will remain on the hold shelf for no longer than fourteen days.
Holds and recalls may be placed
on a checked-out item by clicking on the "Request” button when in the Item Record
in the Library Catalog, and
following the log-on prompts. Forms are also available at the Circulation
desk which may be filled out and submitted to place hold and recall requests.
Please note that hold and
recall requests may
only be placed on an item that is charged (checked out).
Non-charged items from the Stacks (excluding all periodicals and
Reference items) will be held at the Circulation desk for a maximum of
twenty-four hours at a patron’s request.
