Placing Holds On Items Being Used By Others

When an item is checked out to a borrower, another patron can place a hold on that item. When a hold is placed, the person requesting the hold will be notified when the book is returned. The previous borrower will not be able to renew the book. If the book is not returned they will face library restrictions and the possibility of flags on their College student records.

Borrowers eligible to place a hold include Darton Students, Faculty and Staff, and Community patrons who have a valid Library barcode/account number and are free of any restrictions. The person placing the hold must provide us with an updated address to receive notification when the book they need is available.

For offline holds (in the library) go to the Circulation Desk and present your valid Library barcode/account number

You can place your own holds go to REQUEST from the GIL-Find public access catalog after logging onto Your Account.

Placing Recalls On Items Being Used By Others

When an item is checked out to a borrower, another patron can recall that item. When a recall is placed, the person who has borrowed the book will be asked to bring it back if they have had it for at least two weeks. They will not be able to renew the book. If the book is not returned they will face library restrictions and the possibility of flags on their College student records.

Borrowers eligible to place a recall include Darton Students, Faculty and Staff who have a valid Library barcode/account number and are free of any restrictions. The Library may also place urgent recalls for materials needing to be placed on Class Reserves which MUST be returned immediately to the Library. The person placing the recall must provide us with an updated address to receive notification when the book they need is available.

You can place your own recalls from the GIL-Find public access catalog

In cases where several patrons have placed recalls on the same popular book, each patron will be allowed to borrow the book for a two-week period in the order in which the recalls were placed. A recall on an item for course reserve takes precedence over individual recalls.

Recalls cannot be placed on items currently on course reserve.
