Recall (for things that are CHECKED OUT)

Note: A generally faster alternative to recall is to use the EZ-Borrow system. E-ZBorrow Lets you search and request books from other academic libraries. Books are generally delivered within 4-7 days. You will be notified via email when the book is available for pickup.To recall an item:

  1.  Find the checked out item in PITTCat+ you want
  2.  Click through to PITTCat Classic
  3.  Click the Get it! button at the top of the page. Follow the on screen prompts
