dialog displays. Those items with the Status,
'Arrived holds', are listed on top. See the example,
The Holds screen contains the following information:
Indicates the hold has been suspended. See Suspend a Hold for more information.
Title - Displays the title of the item you selected to be placed on hold. Click the title to view the label display.
Requested - Displays the date when you placed the item on hold.
Status - Displays whether the item is:
Arrived holds - has been checked in from the last borrower
Pending - waiting for the item to be checked in
In transit - traveling between branches
Location - Displays the Library branch where the item can be picked up.
Queue - Displays your 'place in line' to receive the item once it is checked in. You may see:
You are next - You will be receiving notice as soon as the item is checked in.
1 - You are first in line to receive the item once the item is returned.
2 - You are second in line to receive the item once the item is returned, and so on...you may see a number as high as 5 or more, depending on how your library sets up their hold procedures.
Let's take a closer look
at the Hold example below:
The number in the far right corner advises how many items you have on hold. In this example, 1 - 38 shows, indicating there are 38 items on hold. Two titles show the Status, 'Arrived holds', and will be ready for pick-up at the Bird Library. Three books show the Status, 'Pending'. Under Queue, 'You are next' indicates you will be next to receive the item once it has been checked back in.
The check box in front
of the title lets you cancel or suspend a hold. In
this example, the two books with the 'Arrived holds' Status
cannot be selected for cancellation or suspension. Their
check boxes have been disabled, shown to be dimmed in comparison to the
Pending status. The
other three items with the Pending
status can be cancelled or suspended since their check boxes are enabled.
IMPORTANT! If your hold is still pending and you are no longer interested in the item, it can be cancelled. Those items with a status of Arrived holds cannot be cancelled. Contact your librarian if you are no longer interested in any hold item showing 'Arrived holds' under Status. See Cancel a Hold for more information.
