You need to place a Hold on the item.

Look for the "Place Hold" link and click it.

There a two different places you can be coming from, through Find It  or the Library Catalogue. The first screenshot is from our Find It search results and the second from the Library Catalogue.




Fill in your student/employee number and four-digit Library PIN.

Select the campus where you would like to pick up the item.

You do not have to select a "Not Needed After" date.

Click the "Submit" button.

A message will appear confirming that the hold is placed for you. Click on "OK" at the bottom of the message.

When the item is returned, we will hold it for 7 days at the library you requested. 

You will receive an email through your MyUFV account indicating that your hold is available and it will also show as available in your library account.

The library cannot guarantee the return date of the item. We notify the current user that the item is on hold and the responsibility is with them to return the item. Fines are $2.00 a day for items on hold.

Please note:

  1. Holds for on-shelf items are processed 3 times per day.
  2. Patrons who personally retrieve items from the shelf for checkout will be given priority over patrons who have placed a hold online.
