If something is currently unavailable/checked out, you can usually place a "hold" on it, so that you are notified when it is returned and available. To see when something currently out is due back, click on the Location/Available line of the full record. You will see a screen like this:

  Due date Due time Sub-library Collection Call Number Item Detail Number of holds Barcode
Place Hold
02/12/2005 00:00 AM Clemens General Collection HB883.5 .E24 2004    

If you want to be notified and have the item held for you when it is returned (and prevent if from being renewed), click on "Place Hold." You will be prompted for your Student ID and your password (generally your last name). This will bring you to the hold form.

The only information you need to supply on the hold form is the "period of interest." If you want the book as soon as it is returned, use today's date in the "from" field, and put your last possible need-by date in the "to" field. It is not necessary to fill in the other fields.

You will be notified by email when the item is available for pickup.
