If you wish to make a request for a digital or physical copy of a sound recording or video recording, please fill out the Music Library Recording Request form.
A recall is a request to the library to ask another user who has an item checked out to bring it back to the library by a specified date. Place a recall to get access to a book or other item within a defined time period. When the item is returned, you will be notified to pick it up.
Holds vs. Recalls:
- If you wish to obtain an item that is checked out to another user (IUCAT shows the item as "checked out"), place a recall as described on this page. See instructions for recall.
- If you wish to have an available item from the Bloomington campus pulled from the shelf in the library and held for you to pick up, you can use the Request Delivery service within IUCAT. Note that these requests take 4-7 working days to complete, so you may find it quicker to come to the library and locate the item yourself.
