Any user may place a hold on any book that is 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 as “available”. These books should be readily available for you to retrieve from the Main Stacks

To place a book on hold, do the following:

  • Go to UMBrella and find the item
  • Confirm that the book is checked out
  • Sign into your library account

  • Click on the Request link next to REQUEST OPTIONS
  • Fill out the required information on the following screen and click Request


  • 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
