Items can be requested and transferred to any Library site at RMIT. In order to place a hold, simply use the function available in LibrarySearch.
Placing a hold
You have located the item you are interested in on the Library’s catalogue but the item is either on loan or available from another Library site:
- Select the Locations tab. If the item is checked out to someone it will have a due date in the status column.
- Select the Request link. Login if you haven’t already logged in.
- Follow the prompts until you are ready to hit the Requestbutton. Make sure to select the pick up location that’s most convenient for you.
- Collecting the items
Holds are available for collection from the holds shelf in the loans area of the Library you specify. They are only held for 5 days. If the item is not collected in this time, it will be placed back into circulation.
Cancelling a hold
If you wish to cancel the hold, log in to My Account and go to the Requests option. Follow the prompts to cancel the item/s you have placed on hold.
If your hold has already been filled and is ready for pickup, please notify staff who can then assist you in cancelling this hold.
