Holds: How to place a request

Holds can be placed on items (4 hour loans and special collection items excluded) currently on loan, or available at another campus. 

To request a hold on an item:

  • Search the Library catalogue and find the item
  • Select the Request button, located at the bottom right of the screen next to the item details
  • Leave as "Any copy" and select the campus where you would like to pick up the item under Pickup location. Note: Items that are available on the shelf, cannot be collected from the same location where the item is located. 
  • Students eligible for Off Campus Library (OCLS) delivery service should select the pickup location as Off Campus Library Service and the item will be posted to you.
  • Select request. 

An email will be sent as soon as the item is available for collection from your requested pickup location and will be held for 4 days. 

You can view the status and expiry date of your requested items, as well as cancel any requests no longer needed by logging into myLibrary
