Any user may place a hold on any book that is charged (checked out) to another user. Once that book is returned, it will be held for you to pick up.

Please Note: you may not place a hold on a book that is listed in the catalog with status “available” or "not charged". These books should be readily available for you to retrieve from the Main Stacks

To place a book on hold, do the following:

  1. Go to the Healey Catalog and find the item.
  2. Confirm that the book is charged (checked out or unavailable).
  3. Click the “Make a Request” link in the blue box on the right-hand side of the screen
  4. Select "Hold" on the following screen
  5. When the item is returned, a notice is sent to you indicating that the book has been returned and is available for pick up at the Circulation Desk.
