Holds and Recalls

Use a Hold if you would like to be next-in-line to receive an item that is currently checked out. To place an item on hold click on the "Request" button found at the top of the screen of the item record in the TIGER Catalog. You will be notified by email when the item is ready to be picked up at the Seay Circulation Desk.

Use a Recall if you need to request a checked-out item for urgent use. Material is subject to recall if the current borrower has had it for more than two weeks. To place a recall, call the Circulation Desk (389-6560) or come in and make the request in person. You will be notified by phone or email when the recalled item has been returned.  Recalled material must be picked up within ten days of the date of the notice of availability. If it is not picked up within this time, it will be returned to the shelves or given to the next person on the waiting list.

If an item you have checked out is recalled, it must be returned immediately. Fines will accrue at $5.00 per day.

** Community Borrowers cannot place electronic holds or recalls.**
