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.
