How to place a hold

You can place holds on materials 24 hours a day 7 days a week through our shared online catalog, NIC.

After performing a search, click on the "Request It" button to place a hold.

If you are not already logged in, you will be taken to the login screen:

Follow the instructions to enter your name, library barcode number and PIN (to create a PIN, simply enter what you would like it to be) and then click "Submit". First time users will then be prompted to confirm their PIN by re-entering it.

You will then come to a screen similar to this:

The first drop down specifies where you would like to pick up the item. You can choose a different library in our system if that is more convenient for you. You do not need to specify a "Cancel" date unless you don't want to wait past a certain date. And be sure to click the "Submit" button! A library staff member will call you when the item is available for you to pick up.
