Place a Hold

What is a hold?

If an item is not available, it can be sent to a campus library when it becomes available. This is called placing a hold.

Holds can be placed using the PCC Library search or by calling a campus library. When the item has arrived at the requested location, a pick up notification email will be sent through MyPCC email. Items will be held for pick-up for 7 days.
