Book Purchase Request
Use this form to request a book be purchased for the libraries' collections, or contact the collection manager in your subject area.
A recall is a request to get a book back from another borrower as soon as possible. UK students, faculty, and staff may recall an item at any time. A recalled item is assigned a new due date which supersedes the most recent due date for the item. Recalled items not returned by the new due date will accrue a recall overdue fine of $2.00 per day. Please respond to these notices promptly. Items that have been recalled may not be renewed.
If a book you need is checked out to another borrower and you need it sooner than the due date, stop by any Circulation Desk to place a recall.
A hold is a request to get a book after it is returned by the current borrower. If a book you want is checked out to another borrower, you may stop by any Circulation Desk to place a hold, or you may place a hold online through InfoKat, the Libraries' online catalog--just look up the book and click "Request."
If you are unable to locate an item that should be on the shelf but is not, inquire at your Circulation Desk. Library personnel will search for the item and notify you if the item is found.
