This guide teaches you how to search the library's catalog.

How to Place a Hold


What is a Hold/Interlibrary Loan? 

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service that allows SRC students, faculty, and staff to borrow materials from another library. 

In RSAcat an ILL is called a Hold. It's fairly easy to use, just follow the directions below. 

 


Is there a book or DVD you need that the library does not have? 

You can use the search limit tabs, shown below, to see other RSA library's results.

When you find an item to place a Hold:

To the right of the item detail on the results page is a Hold button. Click on the button and you will be prompted for your library card number and a pin. Your library card number is on the back of your student ID. Your pin is SRC -- click Submit.
When the item arrives, we will send it to your campus. 

  • Havana or Rushville you may pick up your Library item(s) at the main desk.
  • Macomb you may pick up your Library item(s) in the Academic Success Center.
  • Return the item(s) when you are finished to your pick up point.

If you don't have a student ID you can come to the Learning Resource Center in Canton or Macomb. If you are on the Havana or Rushville campus, ask the receptionist at the front desk of your campus. Online students go to this link, fill out the form, and we will send you a library card.
