Q

Is there a way to place a hold on a book that is not currently checked out?

Answer

Our primary catalog that operates through WorldCat only allows you to place holds on books that are currently checked out.  However, you can place hold on items that aren't checked out through COMCat, our alternative library catalog.  Follow the link below and find the book in the catalog.  Once you find it click on "Place hold" and enter your last name and COM ID number.

Alternatively, you can contact the library via phone, e-mail, chat, or text and we can retrieve the book and place it on hold for you.  Books placed on hold are kept at the circulation desk for a week.
