How Do I recall a book from another user?

Use QuickSearch to find the record for the book you need. If all copies are checked out, you can request a copy from another library or recall the item from the patron who has checked it out. 

To request from another library:

  1. Sign in to QuickSearch using your NetID or library barcode and password. This will allow you to see your request options.
  2. On the record for the item you want, click on E-ZBorrow. You may be prompted to log in again. Search the E-ZBorrow catalog. If the item is available via E-ZBorrow, use the request option to get quick delivery from another academic library.

To place a recall request:

  1. Sign in to QuickSearch using your NetID or library barcode and password
  2. Click the "Request" button and select your pickup library
  3. Click the "Send Request" button to complete your request

In the case of a recall, the current patron will be assigned a new due date and will have 2 weeks to return the material. Requests from other libraries frequently have a quicker turnaround time. 

NOTE: Use the "Special Request" option to recall a book for delivery to an off-campus pickup site. To recall a specific volume in a multi-volume set, enter the volume number in the "Additional Information" field.

You will be notified by email when your requested or recalled item is available for pickup.
