Holds on Returned Items

If an item is already in use, you can ask that it be held for you when it is returned.

You will know an item is in use when the "status" box in the catalog record for the item has a due date listed. When you see a due date, just click on the " Hold Item for Me " button to see the hold form.

Supply your name and barcode number along with any special instructions, e.g. a "not needed after" date.

Click on the "Submit Above Information" button at the bottom of the screen.

You will be called when the item is returned. It will be held at the Heterick Circulation Desk for 72 hours.
