What if the item I want is checked out?
You can use Interlibrary Loan or UBorrow to request the material from another library or you can recall the UI Libraries' copy. In InfoHawk+, click on the recall link. You should count on no less than one week before the item becomes available. Staff will send a notice (usually an e-mail notice) informing you that the book is being held for you.
You can also request that a librarian purchase a second copy for our collection: http://www.lib.uiowa.edu/forms/recommend/
