If an item you need is charged out to another patron, you may recall it through GIL. Recalls may also be placed at the Circulation Desk with the item's call number and your UGACard.
When recalling an item, you may choose the pickup location which is most convenient to you. When the item has been returned, you will be notified as follows:
- Once the book is returned and placed "On Hold," you should receive an email alerting you that you can pick up the book at your desired pickup location.
- You can also check your "My Account" to see when the book has been returned and it will display under "Items Available"
When an item is recalled, the loan period may be shortened. A notice is sent to the current user informing them of the item's new due date.
For UGA patrons, recall fines are $1.00 per day per item with a maximum accrued recall fine of $30.00 per item. For GIL Express patrons, recall fines are $2.50 per day per item with a maximum accrued recall fine of $30.00 per item. Library privileges may be suspended and/or flagged if the item is not returned in a timely fashion.
In the event that more than one user has recalled the same item, each user will be able to borrow it for a two-week period in the order that the recalls were placed. Items recalled to be put on course reserve take precedence over other requests.
