To see the holds you have placed look for the “Holds” option in the dropdown menu located under the “My Stuff” tab at the top of the page.

Although your book may show that your hold is ready, we may not have had time to retrieve it from the shelf and check it out to you.  If you would like your book to be waiting for you at the book circulation desk, please wait for a confirmation email from us letting you know we have it at the circulation desk for you.

Hold pending: This means you are still in line for the book.  We will send an email when the book is ready for you!
