If you see the options "Recall: 2 weeks" or "Get It: 1 Week" the book is currently checked out to someone.  In a nutshell, a recall is asking for a patron to return the specific copy you want and Get it for Me allows us to ask other libraries for a copy of the item.

You are given two options to get the book:

  • Recall It - gives the person that currently has the book checked out a new due date 2 weeks from the day you place the recall.  If that person does not bring the book back by the new due date they will accrue a $1/day fine.  You will be notified when the book is ready for you to pick up.
  • Get it 1 Week - we will try to borrow the book from another library through Interlibrary Loan.  It usually takes about 7 days to get the book.  You will be notified when it is ready to pick up.
