Requesting items for hold or delivery


Some items may be requested to be “held” or set aside for someone so it can be picked up at the desk at a later time.

The amount of time it may take for items to be ready for pick up depends on if the item is available at the time it is requested or if it is currently checked out. 


Hold Policy:

  • Course Reserves, Reference books, and other non-circulating collections and materials cannot be put on hold.
  • Laptops and Hotspots must be requested through the Library Materials Request Form to be put on hold. 
  • Items will be available for pick up for 7 days before being made available for someone else to borrow.
