Printing from personal laptops is not available at this time. You can save your document to a flash drive or you can send it to your e-mail and use one of the 3 quick print stations to the left of the Circulation Desk.
Can I recall an item that is currently checked out?
You can recall an item that is checked out if more than one person places a recall request; they will be placed in a queue based on the date of their request.
Students, faculty or staff may initiate a recall for an item at any time. Recalled books and scores will be due back on the original due date or in 2 weeks, whichever occurs first. Multimedia materials may also be recalled (DVDs, CDs) but the due date will not be adjusted due to the shorter loan periods. Items recalled by library staff to be placed on course reserve are due back on the original due date.
