A "recall" may be placed on an item that is currently on loan to another borrower. A “recall” prevents renewal of the item by the current borrower and requires the return of the item within 7 days of receiving the recall notice.

Except for rush recalls, an item must be checked out to a user at least 14 days before the item is subject to recall. The “recall” interrupts the normal loan period for the user.

Users will be billed overdue fines based on the adjusted loan period when an item is recalled.

The borrower placing the recall will be notified when the item is available.

Only FGCU affiliates have recall privileges. Requests are accepted via e-mail to, at the Circulation Desk, or by phone at (239) 590-7610.
