Recalling Library Materials

A generally faster alternative to recalling a book is to use the EZ-Borrow system. E-ZBorrow Lets you search and request books from other academic libraries. Books are generally delivered within 4-7 days. You will be notified via email when the book is available for pickup.

Recall information:

  • Library materials are subject to recall immediately if they are needed for Course Reserves
  • The fine rate for unreturned recalled items is $1.00 per day per item
  • There is no grace period for overdue recalled materials
  • Recalls can occur anytime. If you are unable to return recalled library materials, please Ask Us to learn about your options
