Pick up Request: Home

New students:  Welcome to Bastyr!  New student accounts were created of Sept 7th.  If you are not able to log in, contact library@bastyr.edu (or call, or chat!) and we'll ensure your account is set up for you.
 
*Please note that while the library is wiping down the exterior of books as they are returned, we can not sanitize each page.*

How to place "holds" for pick up:

Sign in to your library catalog account here: https://bu.library.bastyr.edu/

If you aren’t able to log in – let us know and we’ll set you up! Being able to access your library catalog account will allow you to place hold for pickup requests, renew items, and see due dates. IMPORTANT-IF YOU ARE NOT SIGNED IN YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO PLACE A HOLD! 

 

Search for the book you want (click on "Course Reserve" link to search by course):

Once you have located the title you wish to place a hold on, click on the “place hold” link located underneath the record (circled).

Make sure the item is available at your home library, as holds are not transferred between libraries!

NOTE: WHEN USING THE “COURSE RESERVE” LINK, THE HOLD OPTION MAY NOT SHOW UP IF YOU ARE NOT SIGNED IN. IF THIS HAPPENS, SEARCH FOR THE TITLE AND PLACE THE HOLD FROM THE RESULTS PAGE AS SHOWN BELOW. YOU WILL THEN BE PROMPTED TO SIGN IN, AND TAKEN TO THE NEXT STEP.

 

You will then need to confirm the hold by clicking the “confirm hold” button (circled)

 

You will be notified by email when your hold is available for pick-up – this will likely be at or around 9am when we process all the hold requests for the day.  Please request holds by 9am for same-day pick up!

NOTE: To add a note when placing a hold, i.e. requesting a specific volume or "not needed after" date, click the Show more options link.
