Yes. You can use the catalog “Request” link in order to have a checked out book returned and held for you.
Here’s how it works:
- If the item has been checked out for at least two weeks, it will automatically be recalled for you (each borrower is guaranteed two weeks)
- Once an item has been returned to the pickup library, you will be sent an email notification and it will be held for 10 days
All patrons are eligible to request a hold on materials currently checked out. Only Duke students, faculty and staff and TRLN patrons are eligible for recall privileges.
More details and screen-shots on Recalls and Holds can also be found on our website.

One thought on “Can I request a book that is already checked-out?”
Correction: due to limited space, Circulation is now holding recalls for only 5 days after notifying you. So hurry in and pick up your book!
