Holds & Recalls
Holds: A hold prevents the current patron from renewing an item. Upon the item's return, the requesting patron will be notified by e-mail and the item will be place on hold at the Circulation Desk for one week from the date of return. Once a hold expires, the book is returned to the stacks unless another patron has also placed a hold.
Recalls: Unlike a hold, a recall changes an item's due date to seven days from the date of the recall. When the item is returned, the requesting patron will be notified by email and the item will then be held at the Circulation Desk for one week. If the book is not claimed within this time, it will be returned to the stacks unless another patron has also placed a hold/recall.
Holds & Recalls can be placed by finding the item's record in Socrates, and selecting "Request this item". Holds & Recalls can also be placed at the Circulation Desk.
Library privileges can be blocked for several reasons, including unpaid library bills, registration holds, or invalid addresses. Student privileges are blocked when library fines, fees, or bills reach $50, faculty privileges are blocked at fees of $300 or more, and institutional privileges are blocked at fees of $1.50 or with any overdue books.
