Holds and Recalls allow you to request PSU items that are not currently available at your Library location. Items will be retrieved from other Library locations, or will be recalled if checked-out to another user, and sent to your preferred pickup Library.
You may place holds in The CAT anytime. Items available at other locations are usually available within 3-5 days. Items recalled from other users should be available within 2 weeks. A pickup notice will be sent when your hold becomes available.
Please Note: Holds may not be placed on special-permission loans or items on course reserve.
Most items checked-out from the Libraries for more than 7 days are subject to recall. If an item on your account is recalled, a notice will be sent asking you to return the item by the recall due date indicated on the notice. This date due will be 10 days from the date the notice was sent. Items returned after the recall due date are subject to fees of $3.00 per day for each day overdue.
