It is possible to reserve/hold an item that has been checked out to someone else. Use Discovery to place a hold on a specific item. Once the item is returned to the library, you will be notified via e-mail. Please pick up items as soon as possible after notification. Items must be picked up at the lending section of the library that was specified as the "pickup location" when the item was requested.

Open collection books can be renewed unless reserved by another library user. The hold book must strictly be returned on the due date.

If you need a book from another library and it is not taken out – request it via ILL.

Please cancel holds if you do not need the items any more via "My Library Account" or at the lending section of your home library.
