Book Retrieval for Students

UNC Charlotte Students can now use the "Request" button feature within the catalog to request that a book be held for you at the Circulation desk.  Once you click this button and login to your library account, you will be able to easily request the book to be retrieved.  Some guidelines for the book retrieval service are:

  • If an item is Available or Checked Out, we will either pull the book from the shelves or recall it from another user.
  • Requests submitted on Friday, Saturday or Sunday will be processed the following Monday morning.
  • If an item is Checked Out, contact the Circulation Dept. to have a recall placed on the item.

To place a request, do the following:

  1. Go to the catalog:

  2. Search the catalog, and Click the Request button towards the top of the screen when you find an item you want.

  3. After clicking the "Request" button, you will login to your library account

  4. After logging in, select the item you want to request, and click on the "REQUEST SELECTED ITEM" button

  5. You will be notified through your UNCC email account when the item is ready for pickup at the Circulation Desk if the item was checked out.

  6. You will not be notified through email if the item status is "Available" in the catalog at the time of the request. These items are automatically held at the Circulation Desk for 7 days for pick up.
