Placing on hold

If all loanable copies of an item are unavailable, someone can request a copy to be placed on hold on his or her name.
Placing on hold can be requested as follows:
  • personally at the Circulation Desk (have your Library card at hand)
  • by telephone: 06-28 / 522-000 / extension 1173
  • by e-mail at
In each case the library card number is needed, as well as the title and author of the book.
When a copy of the requested book becomes available, a notification will be sent to the e-mail address we have in our system.
All held items are reserved at the Circulation Desk for 3 days, after which they will be placed back on the shelves and become loanable for anyone.
A total of 5 items can be placed on hold at any time.
