Q. A book is checked out, how can I get it? (Recall)


If you are eligible to recall materials, you may place a recall request on a regularly circulating item that is currently checked out. A patron is allowed to have an item for seven days before the recall goes into effect. Recalls may be placed in the Library or from a personal computer in the following manner:

To recall:

  1. Locate the item in the online catalog.
  2. Click on the "Place Request(s)" link.
  3. Enter your 12-digit barcode number and last name in the correct boxes.
  4. Click on the "Login" button
  5. Click "OK" when Recall appears in the drop down box. The "Recall" screen will appear.
  6. Enter your 12-digit barcode number in the space marked "Barcode".
  7. Click on the "Submit Request" button. A message that states "Your patron initiated request was successful" will appear if the recall is successfully completed.

Visit or call the Circulation Desk at 334-844-1701 if you have any questions or encounter any difficulties.
