Placing a hold through the Library Online Catalogue

To place a hold using our online catalogue click on the ‘Online Catalogue’ link at the top of the page.

Once on the catalogue home page, click Log in, in the top right corner.


Enter your library card number and your PIN and click Log In. Your default PIN is ‘books’ unless you have personally changed it at some point.

In the first drop down menu, change ‘Everything’ to ‘Library Search’ and this will only search the catalogue for the physical items in the collection and exclude any e-books or audiobooks available through Overdrive.

You can change the second drop down menu to Author, Title or Subject, depending on what you are looking for, enter the search terms and click search. This will result in a list of things that match your search terms.

Beside the item you are looking for, click ‘Place Hold’

Click ‘Place Hold’

Click ‘Ok’ and that’s it! We will notify you when the item(s) are ready to be picked up.

To check what items you have on hold, scroll to the top of the page and click on ‘My Account’ in the top right corner. Click on the ‘Holds’ tab and this will show you what items you have placed on hold and whether they are available for pick up, as well as what place you are in line for a particular item.
