Q

I am trying to renew a book. My request came back as "On Hold" and I could not renew it. What does "On Hold" mean?

"On Hold" means the book has been requested by a patron.
If someone else already has the book checked out, that person will not be able to renew the book.
It must be returned by the due date listed on the book.
The person who placed the "Hold" will then be able to check the book out.
If a hold is placed again then the second person will not be able to renew the book.

Answer

"On Hold" means a book has been requested by a patron.
If someone else already has the book checked out, that person will not be able to renew it. They must return it by the due date listed in the book.
The person who placed the "Hold" will then be able to check the book out.

Note: Books which are required reading for a particular class often have numerous holds placed on them. Persons on the "hold" list check out the book in the order using the date the hold was requested.
