New holds options!

By now you’ve been using our new online catalog.  It offers a couple new features for patrons who place holds on items.  If that’s you, keep reading!

Now you can keep a history of the holds you’ve placed.

  • Log in to “My Account”
  • Under “Account Preferences” click the “Search Preferences” tab.
  • Find the checkbox for “Keep history of holds?”
  • Once you check and save that, the system will start keeping a record of any hold you place, even after you’ve gotten the item.  Going forward, to see old holds click the “Holds” tab, then “Holds History” tab.

You can also request an alternate name to print on the slip that is placed inside your hold item for pickup.  The default is your last name and first initials.  Now there is a new option.  You may request a unique name of your choosing.  This feature requires staff assistance to update your account.  If interested, call us at 616.988.5400 or email
