Recall Policy (Daytona Beach)

Most items that are checked out may be recalled once the original patron has had the item for two weeks. However, items that are checked out to Daytona Beach faculty or staff or any Worldwide patron, are not eligible for recall. Daytona Beach faculty and staff check out materials for the entire semester, and return dates for items checked out to Worldwide patrons vary widely and a timely return cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, those materials are not eligible to be recalled.

Recalls may be placed at the BORROW Desk in the library or through the Voyager online catalog. Recalls are placed from the item record in Voyager. Once the needed item is identified as checked out, select the My Account tab from the menu at the top of the screen. A prompt will appear for a library barcode and last name. Follow instructions carefully. A recall notice will be mailed to the patron who has the eligible item, requesting them to return the material immediately. An item available notice will be mailed to the requesting patron when the item is returned to the library and is available for pick-up. Available items will be held at the BORROW Desk for five days. If there is a question as to what items are eligible for a recall, please contact the Access Services Department at 386-226-6592 for clarification.

If a patron receives a Recall notice, this indicates that item is eligible for recall by another patron and the item should be returned to the library immediately. Fines for overdue recalled items accrue at $2.50 per item per day and cap at $50.00. Library privileges will be suspended for patrons with more than one overdue recalled item.
