"Hold" service for books from Alvin Sherman Library

WHAT IS THE ONLINE “HOLD” SERVICE?
When searching NovaCat, you may put a hold on up to 10 items on most circulating books, DVDs, audio books and CDs.
No more calling the circulation desk to request a hold! In most cases, the library will process your hold request within two
business days. However, the process will take longer for items that are already checked out.

PICKUP LOCATION
You can request for an item located at the Alvin Sherman Library be transported and available for you to pick up at your "home library" (ex: HPD Library) When your hold request is filled, you will receive an email message informing you to pick up your item.   

HOW DO I PLACE A HOLD?

  1. Locate the item in NovaCat.
  2. Click on the “Hold for Pick-up” button.
  3. Enter your SharkLink username & password
  4. Specify a “Cancel if not filled by" date if you need an item before a certain date.
  5. If your request is successful, you will see a confirmation message on the screen.
  6. You will be notifed on the screen immediately if your hold request was unsuccessful.
