Q. How do I place a hold on a book that has not been published yet?
If we have purchased the book and it can be found in the catalog, you will be able to place a hold through the catalog as you would any other item. Since in some cases we have not yet received copies from the vendor, it may take some time for the hold to become available.
For information about searching and placing holds, see our Catalog Help page.
If you don't see it in the catalog, we may not have ordered it yet. You can use the Suggest a Purchase form to request that we purchase this title. And you can set up a saved search to be notified when the title or a similar title is added to the collection. Once you are notified that a search has matched your criteria, you can then place a hold.
