Recalls & Search Services

On request, TCNJ faculty may ask that an item that has been in circulation for no less than 7 days be recalled.  The borrower has 3 days counted from the time the item has been recalled or from the original due date–whichever comes first– to return recalled library material.  A recall notice that specifies a new due date for an item is generated by the Library and e-mailed or mailed to the borrower to whom it is charged.  When the item is returned, the person requesting it is notified by e-mail, phone or mail and the item is held for a pick-up at the Access Services Desk for 5 days from the date of notification.

In lieu of making a recall request, all library users are encouraged to place an Interlibrary Loan request to request a copy of TCNJ Library book that is checked out.  Interlibrary Loan requests for books generally arrive between 4 and 6 business days.

All Library users may request a search for materials not found on the shelves that are not checked out already to another person. A Library user will be notified about the search results by e-mail, phone or mail within two (2) days of placing a request with the Access Services staff. Materials that are found will be held for pick-up at the Access Services desk for 5 days after notification is issued.
