Sierra will automatically issue a recall for an item when someone places a hold and the item is eligible for recall (as specified by the loan rule). It will not alert the person placing the hold.
OPAL and OhioLINK policy allows manual recalls only if the item is needed for use on Reserve.
Only items checked out to OPAL patrons can be recalled in the system. If the item is checked out to an OhioLINK patron, notify the PCIRC contact person at the patron's home library.
