Placing a Hold on Library Materials

You may request that an item that is checked out be held for your use when it is returned to the Library. The online library catalog will indicate when an item is due to be returned.

The staff at the Circulation Desk will place an item on reserve (also called a hold) for you, or you can do it online using the following steps:

  1. Sign In to the library’s online catalog.

  2. Search for the item you are interested in.

  3. Click the "Find in Library" link for the item you need.

  4. Click the “Request” link above the location and availability information.

  5. Ignore the “Material Type” and “Terms of Use” fields; however, if you need the item by a certain date, please indicate that in the “Not Needed After” date.

  6. Click the “Request” button.

If the status of the item is “AVAILABLE”, the item will be retrieved and placed on the hold shelf for you to pick up. If the item is checked out, the current patron may retain the item until the due date listed, but the item may not be renewed because you have requested it.

The library staff will call you to let you know when an item you requested is available for pickup.
