Request It Hold: What is Request It Hold

Request It Hold is how students and employees reserve materials for pick up.


Due to the current limitations of library resources and closure of our Philadelphia Branch,

we cannot fill Request It Holds for physical materials from that Branch.

We will continue to fill electronic requests, scan and send materials as we are permitted from the Lancaster & Washington DC Branches.

Request It Hold is how students and employees reserve materials for pick up.
