Placing Holds Online / Placing Recalls at the Loan Desk
Placing a hold on a book puts your name on a waiting list. The book will be available to you after the current borrower returns it. If you need the book sooner, go to the Loan Desk (1st Floor, Library North) to request a recall. DO NOT place a hold yourself. The recall process advances the specified due date, and the current borrower will be notified to return the item promptly.
If you place a hold or a recall on an item that is checked out, you will be notified through your campus e-mail address (NIS account) and regular mail when the book is returned. While it is usually quicker and easier to place a hold online, you can also request one in person at the Loan Desk for books you cannot find in the stacks. After you receive your e-mail notice, you can come to the Loan Desk and pick up the item you requested.
