A user may request that a recall be placed on library material that is currently charged out by clicking on "place a hold" next to the item in the library catalog. The person who has the material currently charged out is notified via email of the recall and the adjusted due date. Only current FSU students, faculty and staff are allowed to recall library materials.
If a patron has an item that is charged out and then recalled by another patron, a new due date is set. This recall due date becomes the official due date of the material, regardless of the original due date. Late recalled items are treated as normal overdue items and assessed .25 per day per item. Non-returned recalled items are billed for replacement cost after they are 30 days overdue.
The patron who placed the recall is notified via email when the material has been returned and is ready to be picked up. Materials are kept on the hold shelf for 10 days.
