eBook Hold

Place a hold on an eBook through Overdrive

Like our physical books and materials, most of our eBooks can only be checked out by one person at a time. If someone wants to check out an eBook that is already checked out by another customer, s/he needs to place a hold on that item. For this activity you will place a hold on an eBook or audio eBook.

What do I need to do?

Navigate to our eMedia site, find an item that is not available (hint - look for a greyed-out book icon), and place a hold on that item.

How do I receive credit?

  1. Find an item that is not available
  2. Place a hold on that item
  3. Take a screenshot of the message confirming that you placed a hold and email it to moc.liamg|gninraellpd#moc.liamg|gninraellpd with your name and "eBook Hold" in the subject line
