Placing a hold on an item
Library members can request books that are located at another campus of Victoria University or ask for a book that is already out on loan to be held for them upon its return.
- Patrons can place holds themselves through Library Search and logging into My Library. Holds may not be placed over the telephone.
- Requests for holds may be placed on standard 2 - 4 week loans.
- Requests for holds can NOT be placed on items that have a restricted loan period: i.e.: 1-Day / 7-Day loans, Reserve Items OR items deemed 'NOT FOR LOAN': i.e.: reference, periodicals, not for loan and special collection items.
- Requests for holds may not be placed on audio-visual materials (video tapes, DVDs, cassette tapes and equipment). Patrons must contact the service desk at a campus to book these items.
