How to place a hold

Do you see a book that you want to borrow, but you're afraid it will be gone before you get to the library?

Do you see something available at another campus, but you don't want to drive across the state to get it?

Place a hold!

When you place a hold on an item, library staff can set it aside for you for pickup at your nearest campus library.

If an item is currently checked out or being sent from one campus to another, it may take a few days to arrive. 

Once items are available for pickup, you should receive a message sent to your Ivy Tech email.

As soon as you're notified, you will have one week to come to the library to get your items.

Please watch the following video to learn more about placing a hold: Ivy Tech Library--Place a hold
