Request, Reserve and Recall
Request for searching library materials
Any library patron can place a request to have materials/books searched when they cannot be found. The patron can make a request in person at the Circulation Desk, or fill in a Request Finding Book Form (Blue Form). The request will be searched 3 times as follows:
- 1st time - the request will be searched on the day the request is received.
- 2nd time - the request will be searched two days after the date received.
- 3rd time - the request will be searched three days after the 2nd time search.
When the book is found, the Library will inform the patron to collect it via e-mail and by phone.
Reserve book on loan
Patrons can reserve a book currently checked out. The reserve will be on queue. Patrons are not allowed to reserve online. They will have to come in person and show their ID card to the Circulation staff.
When the book is available, the Library will inform the patron to collect it via e-mail or by phone.
When a patron needs a book currently checked out, the book may be recalled. The current borrower will be notified via e-mail or by mail. The recalled material(s) must be returned within 10 days of the date recalled. Items that are already due cannot be renewed. Once the recalled item is returned, it will be placed on hold to be collected by requester. A notice will be sent via e-mail or by mail when the book is available.
