Information about recall policies for regular circulating items.

Recall Eligibility

Regular circulating library materials are subject to be recalled by library staff members for course reserves or other special circumstances.

Due Dates

Recalled items will be due 10 calendar days from the recall date or due on the original due date, whichever is soonest.


  • A recall notice will be sent to individuals with recalled items through e-mail when the items are recalled. 
  • An overdue notice will be sent to individuals with overdue recalled items through e-mail when items are 7 days overdue.
  • A second overdue notice will be sent through e-mail when items are 14 days overdue.

Regardless of whether or not these notices are received, it is the borrower’s responsibility to return the material to the Libraries by the dat​e due. The Libraries are not responsible if the notice is not received due to an inaccurate address, if the e-mail is categorized as junk, or if the e-mail address is invalid.


Recalled items are not eligible for renewal.


Patrons who fail to return a recalled item by the due date will incur a $10.00 Late Recall Fee. Additionally, regular overdue fines will accrue for each day the item is late and will be assessed when the item is returned.
