The library is not currently recalling items due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Intercampus borrowing is still available; pickups and dropoffs may be made at the book lockers at the Keele and Glendon campuses. Item retrieval from storage is still available.
Items on loan to another patron can be recalled. Requesting recall will shorten the loan period for the patron currently holding the loan and will stop the item from being renewed. While the library endeavours to purchase extra copies of high-demand items (or puts them in Reserves), multiple recall requests do happen. In these cases, the maximum borrowing will be reduced to 7 days.
To request a recall, sign into Omni and select the Request button, indicate pick-up location and a “not needed after” date and submit the request.
- It may take up to 2 weeks for a recall item to become available to you. You will be notified via email when it is available.
- There may be recall requests that precede your own, resulting in a longer wait.
- You can’t recall items in Reserves.
- You can’t recall items current on order, in processing, in transit, lost, or missing.
