Recalls

Semester borrowers are eligible to request recalls on checked out materials. Please refer to the Library FAQ. All items checked out are subject to recalls per the library's recall policy. Typically, it will be faster to receive items if one requests another copy through LINK+ rather than recalling an item.

LMU students, faculty, and staff are eligible to access e-books and other electronic resources from off-campus locations. For more information, see Off-Campus Access @ the Library.
