A patron may request the recall of any Circulation material on the basis of immediate need. A request may be submitted through the Samford Library Catalog, available on the Samford Library webpage, or by submitting a request to the Circulation staff at the Main Desk in the University Library. The Circulation staff will then contact the patron, either by letter or by telephone, to request the return of the material. This request is not mandatory. The items are returned voluntarily by the patron holding the material.
