Place a Hold
Some of the items that can be borrowed from the University Library (UB) and the Chemikum Branch are kept in a storage area. In JUSTfind in the tab "Catalogue (OPAC)" you can place a hold on such an item online on the page for its search result by clicking on the button "Request". To do this, you need to enter the password for your user account.

In addition to or instead of placing a hold online, you can make a request for items from the storage area with the white hold request forms. These are available at service points in the University Library (e.g. at the circulation and information desks).
In JUSTfind in the tab "Catalogue (OPAC)", you have the option of recalling (3) an item that is on loan on the page for its search result. When you recall an item, the current borrower can no longer renew that item and is required to return it on the original due date. Once the item is returned, it will be held under your name at the circulation desk where you requested to pick it up for one week.
You can recall a maximum of five items at the same time.
To recall an item, you require a password for your user account. You can obtain a password at one of the circulation desks free of charge.
