Use GEORGE to locate the book you want and open its record by clicking on the title link. Next click the Request button near the top of the page. If you are not logged in, you will be prompted to do so, and upon successful login, the "Item Request" page will appear. Choose a pick-up location and enter any special instructions. Click on the Submit button. You will be notified via email when books recalled, searched, pulled, or retrieved from off-campus storage are available for pickup at the location you have selected. You will receive an email or a print notice when an item you recalled is ready for pickup. You can check the status of your requests by clicking on Your Accounts at the top of each library page. Materials usually take at least two business days to arrive and are held at the Circulation Desk for eight days.
