Placing a hold on a book

Sometimes the book you want is not available in the library. 

  1. The book may be stored in one of the library's depots [NL: magazijnen].
    Books from the depot have a CBM or CBC call number (ex. CBM 742 E 38 / CBC TFK B 12050).

  2. The book may be checked out.
    If a book is checked out, the status information below the description will say 'Checked Out' and provide a due date (ex.:).  

In both cases, you need to place a request for hold. 

To do this,

  • click on the title of the book. This will take you to the full record (in WCD it's called 'detailed record'); 
  • use the 'Place hold' feature to place your request;
  • follow the instructions.
