If the item you want is checked out or on order (found under
Copy/Holding information) you may request it and you will be put on a
waiting list for the book. As soon as the book becomes available for you to check out, you will be contacted via e-mail or postal mail to come and pick it up. We will hold the book for one week. If you do not pick it up within that time, the hold will be removed and the book will be put back on the shelf or held for the next person in line.
