How do I place holds on items?

  • Sign in to your account here.
  • Search the catalog by using the search box that you see on the screen or by clicking the Catalog Home button.
  • Once you find the item, click the Place a Hold button. If there is no Place a Hold button visible, you are looking at an item that cannot be placed on hold.
  • Choose the location where you would like to pick the item up from the top drop-down menu.
  • Click Submit.

If the item status is "Check Shelf," it will be sent to your pickup location and will be available within a week.

If all copies are checked out or the item is still on order, you will be placed on a hold list.

You will be notified by e-mail or phone when the item is ready to be picked up.
