How to Put a Hold on a Physical Item in the Library

Patrons may request to have physical library items placed on hold for them. Once items are ready, they will be placed on the hold shelf in the library or patrons can arrange for curbside pickup. View the handout below for how to place a hold on physical library materials.

If you are having trouble with putting an item on hold email us at circulation@uwrf.edu or call us at 715-425-3321.
