If the local copy of the book from you want is already checked out, you can recall it or get it through Interlibrary Loan.

  • Find the book in Melvyl, the catalog for all UC libraries
  • If the local copy is checked out, you will see the option to Place Hold
  • Place Hold means that the library will recall the book
  • The library will email you when the book is returned and ready for you to check out

A better option may be to get a copy through Interlibrary Loan from another campus. This is often faster than recalling the book from another patron.
