Loan Recall

  • The library collection is a shared collection owned by the institute. Hence, all materials are subjected to recall or request
  • A recall and request services are available to all the library members irrespective of categories
  • Recalls will be made independent of the category of borrower
  • After completion of 15 days any users are liable for the recall of the item
  • Patrons will be notified, when the requested or recalled item has arrived and will have 2 days to pick upthe item before it is re-shelved or issued to the next in line
  • Failure to receive a recall notice (due to travel, illness, or problems with mail delivery) does not excuse users from paying recall fines
