Request Return of Checked-out Items
If you need a library item that’s currently checked out to someone else, you can request it get returned by “recalling” it. This will change the due date for the other person.
Use the Get This link in Library Search and select Recall it to request a recall.
When a recall happens to you
If an item you have is recalled, you will receive a notice via email that shows your new due date.
If the item is not returned by the new due date, your borrowing privileges will be suspended. Overdue recalled items are charged fines of $2 per day, per item.
Interlibrary loan recalls
When an interlibrary loan item is recalled, we’ll send you an email giving you 3 days to return the item.
Items are subject to recall at any time.
Please return to your recalled item directly to the Interlibrary Loan Office by the new due date. U-M Flint and U-M Dearborn patrons can return their items to their respective campus library.
Items not returned by the new due date will result in your borrowing and interlibrary loan privileges being suspended.
