Placing and Managing Holds

After searching LINKcat, click on a single title or to select multiple titles, check the boxes next to each title. Then:

  • Click Place Hold(s).
  • Log in to your account, if prompted.
  • Change pickup library if desired.
  • Click Place Hold for a single hold or Submit All for multiple holds.

Viewing your holds

In the upper right-hand corner, choose My Dashboard. If prompted, log in to your account. Click On Hold from your Library Dashboard. By default, In Transit and Waiting holds appear first (in green), then Active holds (in white), and then Suspended holds (in yellow).

Suspending your holds

Going to be unavailable or out of town? Suspend your holds so you don’t miss them.

For a single hold, find the title in your holds list, and click Suspend on the right. For multiple holds, select one or more titles using the checkboxes, and click Suspend at the top. In the pop-up box, optionally enter the date upon which you want your hold to resume, or leave the date blank. Click Suspend to confirm.

Resuming your holds

For a single hold, find the title in your holds list, and click Resume on the right. For multiple holds, select one or more titles using the checkboxes, and click Resume at the top.

Canceling your holds

For a single hold, find the title in your holds list, and click Cancel on the right. For multiple holds, select one or more titles using the checkboxes, and click Cancel at the top.
