Search for Items
Select the search index you want to use:

Click on Search.
In the search results view Click on Show More Details on the top bar to see more information about that item.
Use the format icons to help you determine the exact item you want. It could be a book, audio book, or e-book. Westmoreland Library does NOT have access to e-books, but they may still show up in your search.

When you’ve determined that this is the item you want, click on Place Hold. This will alert us that you want that item and we can set it aside for you. If the item is checked out, we will let you know when it comes back and you can pick it up. You will need to be logged in for this to work.

Click sumbit at the bottom if all of your information is correct, or click cancel if you'd like to cancel the hold.
