Before You Recall, UBorrow

UBorrow is a new service from the University of Chicago Library that lets you request over 90 million books from 13 research libraries. Books arrive fast — usually in under a week. You can keep print books for 12 weeks with an option to renew for another 4 weeks. Your book will not be subject to recall except under unusual circumstances. Best of all, you can avoid recalling a book from a colleague (and it’s likely that you’ll be afforded the same courtesy!)

The next time a book you need is checked out, click on the “Request via UBorrow” instead of the “Recall” link in Lens. Click here for more information. Happy borrowing!
