A recall notice is a notification that the item borrowed is needed for course reserves or, as a last resort, for a person for whom we cannot provide another copy after requesting it from our resource sharing partners. Such an item must be returned by the recall due date. 

All loaned items are eligible for potential recall by an instructor for course reserves, even Resource Sharing items borrowed from another institution (i.e. BorrowDirect).

If you are leaving campus for a period of time, please return your library books prior to leaving, or make arrangements to have them returned on your behalf to the library should they be recalled while you are away.

Overdue recalled items are subject to a $1/day fine.

If you have questions or concerns about the recall request, please call Van Pelt Circulation at 215-898-7566.
