Ensure Your Request Items Don't Arrive while You're Out of Town

If you're going on vacation and don't want to lose your place in line, simply place a FREEZE on your items

  1. Log in to Your Library Record.
  2. Click on Requests (Holds).
  3. Select FREEZE and click on UPDATE LIST.

Please note: Not all requests can be frozen. A check box will appear next to each request that can be frozen. When no box appears next to the item, the request cannot be frozen since the system has already set aside an item to fill your request.

When you come back from vacation, log in to Your Library Record, deselect your items and click on UPDATE LIST.
