Ordering Materials from Bata Library

The Hold feature in the catalogue is used to transfer items between library branches.

Placing a Hold in the Library Catalogue

    Follow these steps:

    • Click on the title of the item you want to place a hold on (it will bring up the item's catalogue record).
    • In the record click the Place Hold link listed below Item Details (left side of screen).
    • Enter your user ID and PIN, and then select Oshawa Branch as your pickup location.
    • A confirmation message will appear once the hold has been placed.
    • You will receive an e-mail when your book is available for pickup at the Trent University Durham-GTA Library. This normally takes 2-3 days.

    Note: If the book you want to request is currently checked out by another user you can still place a hold on the book. This puts you in line to get the item when it's returned, and prevents it from being renewed.

    Durham-GTA students and instructors can only place a hold on Bata Library items, and Peterborough students and instructors can only place a hold on Trent University Durham-GTA Library items.

    If you have any questions or concerns while placing a hold please contact the Trent University Durham Library.
