Place a Hold or Recall

Holds and recalls allow you to request something that is checked out.

Place a hold when someone has borrowed an item and you want to use it when it is returned. It will be held for you at the circulation desk upon its return.

Place a recall when someone has borrowed an item, and the library will reduce the other person's loan time so that you can get the item sooner. It will be held for you at the Main Desk upon its return.
