Holds

If an item you need is on loan, or at another campus Library, you can place a hold on it in LibrarySearch.

Conditions

Placing a holds

You must be logged in to place a hold.

  1. In LibrarySearch, select the Locations tab for the item you want to reserve. If it is on loan, it will have a due date in the status column.
  2. Select the Place a Hold option and follow the prompts. Make sure to select the convenient pick up location.

Collecting your holds

Holds are available for collection from the holds shelf in the loans area of the Library you’ve selected as the pick up location. You’ll have 5 days to collect it. If you do not pick your holds in this time, the items will be placed back into circulation.

Cancelling a hold

You can cancel your holds by going to My Account in LibrarySearch, and selecting the Holds option.

If the hold you want to cancel is already available for a pick up, please let us know that you no longer need it. We can then re-shelve it or hold it for the next person.
