After locating your book in the library homepage (or WorldCat Discovery Search), click on the "Held by Virginia Tech" link to take you to the catalog page for placing a hold, then use the "Place Hold" link on the book's online catalog screen to place a hold (Login with your VT PID and 2-factor password is required). Books are pulled twice a day, in the morning and again late afternoons.

If the book is located at another VT library location, you can place the item on hold and it will take a few days to process and relocate to Newman Library, or another University Libraries branch for pickup.   

Faculty can choose to have items delivered to their offices via Faculty/Staff Campus Delivery. Select this option when placing your hold.

You will receive an email notification when your item is available for pickup at the Newman Services Desk located on the second floor of Newman library.

*If the book's location is "Newman Reserve" it is first-come first-served and cannot be placed on hold.
