Library materials now available for recall

Back by popular demand, ASU Library’s recall service has returned, giving ASU students, faculty and staff the option to request an item that is checked-out by another user.

When an item appears as “on loan,” library users may now recall that item – a process by which the loan period for a checked-out item is shortened when a request for that item is made by another user. Once the item has been recalled and returned, the item is reserved for the user who recalled it.

Starting this week, the request option “Request ASU Copy” will appear on the One Search page to reflect this service update.

Alternatively, users still have the option to request checked out items from an external library through ASU Library’s Interlibrary Loan service. This short-loan option often provides a quicker delivery time to the user making the request.  Look for the link labelled “Request External Copy.”
