Holds

How to use holds at the library

If a library book that you want is checked out to someone else, you may place a hold on it. This ensures that you will be notified when the item becomes available.

Please note that you cannot place holds on Reserve items, journals, magazines, videos, DVDs, films, 1-day loan items, or 3-day loan items.

Holds may be placed through the Library catalogue as follows:

  • Search for and select the item you would like to place a hold on
  • If the item is checked out, click on Place Hold
  • Login to your Library Account, for your login ID, append @georgebrown.ca to your student/employee number. For example, if your student number is 123456789, you would use 123456789@georgebrown.ca. Your password is your STUVIEW password.
  • Select your location and Place Hold

When your hold is ready for pick-up, you will be telephoned or emailed. For all students, email notices will be sent to your George Brown Student email account. Be sure to check it regularly. Items from the regular collection will be held for you at the Circulation/Help Desk for 7 days. * 7-day loan items will be held for you at the Circulation/Help Desk for 7 days.
