Place A Reserve

You can place a request for a title in your search results list and ask that the title be held for you to pick up. You may also request specific copies of a title, specific issues of a serial, or specific parts of multi-part sets. You need your barcode number (library card number) and password to request a title.

You may also request interlibrary loans. If the title you want is not available at the library, we will obtain it for you from another library. Contact the Adult Information Desk for assistance with interlibrary loans. Interlibrary loans may take some time to obtain.

Request any copy of a title

To request any copy of a title listed in your search results:

  1. When the title you want is displayed in your search results, click or tap Place Request for the title.

    Note:
    The Place Request option may not be available for titles that represent Web sites, electronic resources, or other types of material.

  2. If the log-in form appears, type your barcode number (library account number) and password in the appropriate boxes, and select Log In. The request form appears.

  3. Make sure Pickup Library says Everett Roehl Marshfield Public Library. If you want to activate your request at a future time, type the date in the Activation Date box in the format mm/dd/year. If you want your request to be active immediately, leave today’s date in the Activation Date box.

  4. Select Submit Request.

    If other requests are active for the same title, the library may display a message that tells you how many requests have been placed before yours. You can choose to continue or cancel the request.

    If you click or tap Continue, a message informs you that your request has been placed.

    Note:
    Your request may not be successful if your library account is blocked or if the requested material does not circulate. A message is displayed if your request cannot be placed.

  5. Select Return to search results to display your search results again, select Go to list of hold requests to access your library account and see your current list of requests, or select Log Out if you have finished working with your hold request and do not plan to do anything else that involves your library account.
