If a book is listed as “Available” in QuickSearch by the call number and location, you may submit a hold request provided you have no overdue items or unpaid fines. Once you verify availability, click the “Request it” link in the item record. 

If you are not already logged in to your library account, you will be prompted to log in using your Multipass credentials. Once logged in you will be able to place the hold by clicking Submit.

The item will be pulled by Circulation staff the following day, and you will receive an e-mail notification when it is ready for pick-up.  If you are looking to know the status of your holds, you can view your holds in your library account by clicking your name in the upper right hand corner of the page and clicking the Holds tab on the next screen.
