Holds

Most of the circulating collections are eligible for pickup at the Media Commons service desk, or for pickup at UTM and UTSC.

To request pickup of an item, find the item you wish to borrow in LibrarySearch, select Get It, and then select the Library Pickup request option. Finally, select your preferred pickup location from the drop-down menu and submit.

If you need a film available for a specific day in the future (e.g. for a scheduled screening), use the booking feature outlined below.

Advanced Bookings

Faculty, staff and graduate students may book audiovisual material for pickup at the Media Commons, UTM or UTSC by using the Booking feature in LibrarySearch.

Like a hold, find the item you wish to book in the catalogue, select Get It, and then select Library Pickup. You'll be prompted to select a Request Type, select Booking. Choose a pickup location, as well as a start and end date, then submit. 

Unlike normal hold requests, bookings maybe placed up to 1 year in advance and should only start more than 14 days from the day you place the request. Note that a booking can last no longer than 14 days.
