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

Recall information:

  • All ULS items are subject to recall after two weeks
  • Items recalled for course reserve are subject to immediate recall as are books that have been checked out for more than two weeks
  • The fine rate for unreturned recalled items is $1.00 per day per item
  • There is no grace period for overdue recalled materials
  • Please note regarding traveling with library materials: Recalls are patron initiated. With many students and faculty on campus throughout the year recalls can occur anytime. If you are unable to return library materials before travel it’s recommended they are made available to someone who can return them on your behalf if recalled.
