What is a recall?
Any item on regular or extended loan may be recalled. The original borrower is assured of at least seven days use of the requested item before it must be returned. Any library material which is recalled must be returned directly to the issuing library by the date specified. Secondary Users may not recall books on loan.
They are given short loan periods to ensure fair access and are placed on reserve upon request of faculty, instructors and teaching assistants.
Course Reserves are kept behind the circulation desk. In order to provide more efficient service, please bring the call number of the item you wish to borrow. Whenever possible, material is made available in an electronic format to provide access 24/7.
