Owl FAU Libraries
Recall/Hold Request Form

The Recall/Hold form can be used when an item that you need is checked out by another patron. A "hold" will save the book for you when it's returned. A "recall" goes one step further. A letter is sent to the current borrower notifying them that another person needs the book and that a new, sooner due date has been given. Instead of the original due date -which could be up to 6 months- the borrower has just 2 weeks from the date the recall is placed. If they don't return the book by the *new* due date, fines begin to accrue.  (Please note that only FAU currently enrolled students, faculty, staff, and visiting researchers may place recall/holds on items.)

To place a Recall or Hold, please provide the information requested below. You will received a confirmation notice by e-mail once we've placed the Recall or Hold. When the book is returned, we will send you an email, call you, or send you a letter in the mail and hold the book for 7 days at the Circulation Desk of the Library where the book is located.

Additional forms may be submitted without retyping identical information such as name and address by selecting and deleting the book information and providing information about the next item.
