Holds/Recalls
If the book you need is checked out you can place a hold or recall except for course reserve items.
Hold - The patron who currently has the item checked out must return the item on its due date. If the item is not returned on the due date, the patron will begin to accrue overdue fees. When the item is returned you will receive email notification that the item is available.

Recall - The patron who currently has the item checked out must return the item 5 days after the recall is placed. If the item is not returned on the new due date, the patron will begin to accrue recall fees. When the item is returned you will receive email notification that the item is available.

Holds/Recalls may not be placed on Course Reserves, Special Reserves, Videotapes, DVD's, or Audio CD's.
