We are excited to share our new Library catalog and search tool! We hope that you will find it easy to search and explore our collections. If you need help, have questions, or want to share feedback, visit the Ask a Librarian page.


Recalling an item

To recall an item in the catalog that is checked out, use the RECALL button on the checked-out item's record in the online catalog.

 If you need assistance recalling a book, please speak with a research librarian or a circulation desk staff member.

 TIP: Instead of recalling the book you need, try your search in ConnectNY: if the book is available there, you're likely to receive it more quickly.

Annex requests

Books that are in our Annex are identified in the online catalog by the location "Annex."  To request a book from the Annex, locate the record for the item you wish to recall, log into your library account, locate the "Get It" subheading, select "Recall (From Annex or Patron)", and select "Send Request."

If you make a request before 1:30 p.m., the book should be available the next day (M-F).  You will receive an email notifying you when the book is available.  You may pick it up at the Circulation & Reserves Desk.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact a librarian at
