Put a Hold on Materials

Library patrons may place a hold on materials based on the following:
  • If an item is checked out, visit the Circulation Department, call (954) 262-4601, or go online at https://novacat.nova.edu/patroninfo  to request it. Notification is done by phone or email when the item is returned, and it will be held at the Circulation Desk for 5 days for you.
  • If an item is available, the Circulation Department will place it on the hold shelf for five days. Holds on available items can be placed online at https://novacat.nova.edu/patroninfo or call (954) 262-4601. Online holds on available items takes a maximum of 2 business days to process. *Please note that borrowing of items is on first come first serve basis.
  • Patrons can place holds on Broward County Library items using the BCL catalog and they can request to pick them up at the Alvin Sherman Library Circulation Desk. A BCL library card is needed for the circulation of BCL items through the BCL system. BCL items will be held for only 5 days.
  • All patrons have a maximum of 10 holds.
