The book I need is checked out by someone else right now. What can I do?

A recall is a request to the library to ask another user who has an item checked out to bring it back to the library by a specified date. You can place a recall on an item by selecting the "request" button at the top of the item information in our catalog.  When the item is returned, you will be notified to pick it up.

However, if you are affiliated with UNLV (faculty, student or staff), you may choose to place an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request for the item instead.  Whether done via Link+, BorrowItNow or another ILL method, borrowing the material from another library is often faster than a local, recall request.
