You will receive an email when your item is ready for pickup at the Customer Services (circulation) desk on the main floor of the library.
To place a hold on an item that is currently checked out (this process is called a “recall”) follow the same steps listed above. The person who has the book checked out will have 14 days to return it, unless the original due date is sooner. You can track the status of your recall in your library account, and you’ll receive an email when the item is available for pickup.
For information about placing USMAI materials on hold, see the USMAI Borrowing page.
