Recalls and Holds

Only Vassar students, faculty, administrators and staff may recall items.

  • Keep in mind: 
    • Patrons are allowed to keep books for 2 weeks after the date they checked it out (2 days for dvd/vhs).
    • If a book is checked out to an OFF-CAMPUS user, that user is allowed to keep the book for 29 days after the checkout date. 
    • The exception is if an item is needed for Reserves; then the item must be returned by the due date specified on the Recall notice. 
    • If the book is available via ConnectNY placing a ConnectNY request is usually faster than recalling Vassar's copy.  Likewise, if a book you have checked out has been recalled, see if you can borrow a copy via ConnectNY.
    •  
  • To ascertain the due date of recalled books, log into your Circulation Record, but be advised that the book may come back to the library earlier or later than that date. 
  • Student late fee on recalled items returned after the recall notice date is $1.00 per day per item. 
  • The pick-up location for recalled material is the Main Library Circulation desk.  Notices are sent to the patron who recalled the item once it is returned and ready for pick up.
