Locate the resource to be cancelled and click Cancel Checkout, Cancel Request, or Cancel Hold.

Cancel Checkout

After a resource has been cancelled, a notification will be sent to the user detailing the action taken, date, title, and author.

Please Note: Downloaded resources and online reads cannot be cancelled. Downloaded resources need to be returned to the cloud in order for the cancel button to become available. Online reads are temporary and will terminate once the resource is closed.

Downloaded Title

Additionally, an assigned resource cannot be cancelled from the Circulation page. However, a member of an assignment can be manually removed if needed. This will free up a copy of the title to be redeemed by another student.
