Renewals, Recalls & Holds


Books may be renewed unless recalled by another borrower. At the J.D. Williams Library long-term loan items may be renewed at Circulation West or Circulation East by bringing your books to these locations. Items may also be renewed online through “My Library Account” or by phone. Science Library material may be renewed at the Science Library service desk or online through “My Library Account” . Renewal of short-term loan items should be done at the original service point.


All library materials may be recalled or have a hold placed on them. A recall is an official request for a book to be returned early. A hold is the reserving of an item, upon return, for the next user. Items placed on hold for another user may not be renewed.

If the item you need is currently checked out, login to your My Library account, click on the recall/request button at the top of the screen, and follow the instructions.

Recalled materials must be returned within 14 days of the recall date to avoid fines.


Holds may be placed at Circulation West in the J.D. Williams Library or the Science Library service desk. You will need your Ole Miss ID. You have the option of canceling your own holds by logging to your My Library Account
