Request or Recall Materials

How to request or recall materials you need to borrow


Request from Other Emory Libraries

You may request items from other Emory Libraries. You will be notified once the item is available at your chosen library service desk.

Please note that items requested from the Library Service Center and Oxford College Library are usually sent within two business days. 

To request an item from another Emory Library:

  • Log in to your discoverE account
  • Look up the item and open the item record
  • Click on the Physical Resource tab
  • Click on Request

If you are a non-Emory visitor without an Emory account, you can request Library Service Center materials with the Visitor Material Request Form.

Recall a Checked Out Item

You may recall items that are currently checked out to other patrons. Initiating a recall request will shorten the due date for the item to ten days from the date of the recall. You will be notified once the item is returned.

To recall an item:

  • Log in to your discoverE account
  • Look up the item and open the item record
  • Click on the Physical Resource tab
  • Click on Request to place a recall
