Request a Hold on a Book that is Checked Out

COVID-19 Update: User-initiated holds in the library catalog system have been temporarily suspended during the library's closure for the COVID-19 crisis. If you require access to an item from the library, please place a request in the ILLiad system, and staff will explore options for providing access to the content.

If you wish to be placed on a waiting list for a book that is currently checked out by another user, you may visit the Library's catalog for books, media, and more to place a hold.

Please see the screenshot below to find where to click to place a hold.

Where to find the book hold link

We cannot hold or reserve books that are currently in the library. This hold request will only be used to recall a book that is checked out to someone else. You will be contacted when the book has been returned and is available for you to check out.

If you are not comfortable using My Account, you may also request a hold in person at the Library.

For borrowing and hold policies, see our Circulation Policies.
