- All books charged out are subject to recall for another library user after 10 days of initial use regardless of the library user status (i.e. faculty, graduate, undergraduate, staff, Indiana resident).
- Before processing a recall request we encourage our users to first check the stacks to see if a copy of the needed work is available . In some situations copies of a given work may be found in the stacks, available for your immediate use. Copies of a work that have not yet been barcoded, or have only brief "unlinked" records (created at the circulation counter for circulation purposes) will not show up in the online catalog. If you have checked the stacks for the item, and wish for us to proceed with the recall, simply supply your email address, your library ID (barcode) number and the call number and title of the book. You will be notified via mail when the item becomes available (usually 10 days to 2 weeks).
- Recall requests should be addressed to the specific library or Wells Library department from which the materials were borrowed.
- You will be asked to provide your full email address. Make sure you enter the correct address, in case there are problems and we need to contact you. When you submit a request, a copy of it will also be sent to the email address you provide. If you do not receive a copy of your request within a reasonable period of time, it probably means that your email address was not entered correctly.
- You will be asked to provide the Library Identification Number (barcode number) on your Photo ID or borrower's card in addition to the book's call number.
- Your library ID number (your library barcode number, not your social security number) can be found on your IU photo ID or on your red and white library borrowers card. It begins with a 2, followed by a zero, and other numbers. Please submit the entire number, including all of the zeros.
- The Call Number of the Book is from the IUCAT record.
