Q. How can I request a book that is currently checked-out?
How do I place a hold on a borrowed item?
Holds may be placed on materials that are currently charged out by placing a Hold request using the online catalog system
How do I recall a borrowed item?
All materials are subject to recall before its original due date when the item is needed by another library borrower.
The library understands that borrowers need materials for the papers they have to write and exams for which they have to study. However, the library is charged with making sure as many borrowers as possible get access to the materials they need. Sometimes -- when there is great demand and few resources -- that means you get a shorter "turn" with the material.
