Library materials must be recalled using Orbis or at any circulation desk.

A new interface to Orbis debuted July 16 and the procedure to recall books that are checked out has been improved. You may now recall a book directly within Orbis.

  • Search Orbis, and locate the record for the item you want to recall
  • Click PLACE REQUESTS from the menu bar at the top of the screen
  • If you aren't already logged on, enter the required information
  • Choose RECALL from the drop down menu, and click OK
  • Be sure to fill in all the remaining boxes on the screen before submitting your request

For more step-by-step instructions and to learn more about recall policies, see Orbis help.
