At this time, we are not recalling books because so many library users are away from campus and unable to return items to campus. If you need a book that is currently checked out, please submit a purchase request, and we will try to obtain an electronic copy for you.
You can request items found in the Books+ search in Quicksearch. Start by clicking on a title in the search results:
This takes you to the item view page. The location, call number, and availability of the item are noted in the 'Available from:" box on the right. In the example below, the item is located at the Library Shelving Facility, the call number is NLj20 891C, it is not checked out , and both recall/request and scanning services are available for the item. NOTE: A request is known as a 'recall' if the item is checked out .
- Click "Request recall or delivery" to request an item to be delivered to a circulation desk near you.
- Yale University Library also offers articles/chapter scanning through our Scan & Deliver service.
To request an article or chapter scan, click "Request scan of article/chapter."
NOTE: Not every item in the Books+ search is requestable or scannable. If you encounter an item that you know should be available for these services, please report the problem here: web.library.yale.edu/lit/wts/report-problem.
