Manage My Library Account


Log in to your library account to view items currently checked out, and to renew items


When you are searching the Online Catalog and find that an item is already checked-out, you have options for getting it.  After locating the item in the catalog, click on the title and then select Make a Request.

Recall:  An item must be checked-out for a minimum of 2 weeks before it can be recalled.  When you recall an item, the customer who has the item is notified by email that the item has been recalled and must be returned within 10 days.  If you have an item that has been recalled, please note that you will be charged $1.00 per day and your library privileges will be suspended until the item is returned.  Recall fines accrue to a maximum of $20.00.

Hold:  Holds are appropriate for items that are due soon or overdue, or when you can wait longer than 2 weeks.  Placing a hold prevents other customers from checking the item out or renewing their loan.

NOTE:  If a title in the Online Catalog is not checked-out, you must go to the library indicated in the Online Catalog, locate the item on the shelf, and check it out.  The Turchin Library is an independent library on-campus similar to the Law Library and is not currently part of the Howard-Tilton Memorial Library courier service.
