PLACING HOLDS

  • Holds can only be placed by library staff and only on items that are checked out.
  • If you would like to place a hold on an item that has been checked out, please email the Circulation Desk (circ@vst.edu), call us (604.822.9382), or visit the library.
  • If the requested item is required for reserves or has gone missing, you will receive an email informing you of this and the hold will be dropped.
  • Once a hold becomes available, you will receive an email notifying you that the item is available at the Circulation Desk.
  • Items held by VST can only be picked up at the VST library; holds cannot be routed to our partner libraries.
  • The hold will be kept at the Circulation Desk for seven days.
  • If it is not picked up within a week, the item will be re-shelved and available for general use.  You will be sent an email informing you that the hold has expired and the item has been re-shelved.
