Placing Holds with Discovery

Discovery can be used to place holds! The Public Library "Classic Catalog" can still be used to Create Lists, Manage Checkouts and Holds, as well as track Reading History.

Below, find an example of how to place a hold in Discovery. Public Library branches with current holdings of a copy of the resource are highlighted with   green  , and items already checked out with   red  .

Then, use the Find a Copy button to see if any copies are available and to place a hold!

Select the Find a Copy button by the item in your search results or on the item record page. You will be taken to that item in the classic catalog, where you can click on the Place a Hold button. If not already logged in to My Account, enter library card number and PIN into the authentication page, and then select the location where the book will be picked up. Your home library will be selected as the default when you select the arrow for dropdown, but any location may be selected. Click Submit to finish requesting the hold.
