What is a recall?

  • A recall allows current UCR Faculty, Staff, and Students to place a hold on UCR owned material that is currently checked out using the Library Catalog (SCOTTY).  A recall alters the original due date of a book, requiring the item to be returned sooner. In most instances, the book will be available to you in 7-10 days. 

How do I recall an item?

  • Select the "Place a Hold" button from the top toolbar.

    hold 1
  • Enter your Patron Barcode Number from your UCR ID/Library Card and your 4 digit Library PIN.
  • Choose your pickup location (Rivera, Orbach Science, Multimedia or Music)
  • Press Submit

    hold 2

  • Choose "Request Selected Item" 

    hold 3

When will my book be available?

  • It takes approximately 7-10 days. You will receive an email when your book is ready for pickup.
