A. Recalls/Holds
B. Traces

The recall privilege is dependent upon borrower type and material type. See Chapter II for explanations of privileges by borrower type. See Chapter III for restrictions by material type.

A. Recalls/Holds

If a library item is checked out and needed before its due date, any University of Colorado faculty, staff, or student may request that the item be returned.  A notice is sent to the patron who has the item requesting that it be returned within 10 days of the date of the recall.  If a book already has a recall placed on it, subsequent patrons can place a hold on it. This will mean that the person recalling the book will only be allowed to check it out for 14 days and the person placing the hold will be in line to receive the item next.  Fines will be charged on overdue recalled material.

B. Traces

Any University of Colorado faculty, staff, or student may place a trace on a library item that cannot be immediately located on the shelf.  When the item is found, a notice is sent to the person requesting the item.
