Placing Holds on Books

By , September 4, 2008 2:07 pm

The Butler Libraries’ Catalog allows you to place a hold on any book that is currently checked out. This means that as soon as the book is returned we will “hold” the book for you and you will receive an automatic notification telling you it’s ready for check-out.

To place a hold on a book, check your due-dates, etc., just click on Library Catalog from the Libraries’ website. Once in the catalog just click on the “My Library Card” button and enter the required information.

Alternately, you can also submit a hold request from within a catalog record. To do so follow these easy steps:

1. Conduct a search in our catalog for a particular book or topic.

2. From the list of results click on the “check for copies” link.

3. Under the action column (right side of screen) click on the “Request” link.

As always you can still call either library and have staff place a hold on a book for you as well.

  • Science Library (317) 940-9401
  • Irwin Library (317) 940-9227
