Why did I get a recall notice from the Library?

All circulating items are subject to recall by the Library for the purposes of course reserves or, in the case of AV materials, for in-class viewings. Initial recall notices will be sent via email; secondary and tertiary notices may be sent via email or phone.  Recalled items are due immediately.  Fines for recalled items will begin to accrue 7 days after the recall date.

Can you pull a book from the shelves and hold it for me at the desk?

Materials in the Library's circulating collection are checked out on a first come, first served basis, with the exception of audiovisual materials that are needed for classroom viewing.  The Library does not have sufficient staff to pull books from the circulating stacks and hold them for pick-up at the Service Desk.

If you have requested a book through I-Share or Interlibrary Loan, we will hold it at the desk for you for two weeks after we notify you that it has arrived. After two weeks, we will send it back to the lending library.

I need to show a video in class. Can you hold that for me?

Faculty (Core and Adjunct) may reserve VHS tapes or DVDs in advance for the purposes of classroom viewing by contacting the Library Service Desk. If you are a student and you need a video for a class, please talk to your instructor about making arrangements with the Library.
