Get that 4th floor book!

4th floor stacks for call numbers from N to QP, shelved on the “Student Union side” of the floor, may be inaccessible to the average human. But John C. Hitt Library folks are not average humans! With a few key strokes, we can get that book for you.

At library.ucf.edu, click on the white “Books/Catalog” button, and key in your search. When you see a title in your results list that absolutely fascinates you, you will see a link in the record that says, “Place a Hold”. When you click on it, you will be asked for your NID and NID password. Once you submit that information, you will see your search replicated on the screen, followed by the message, “Hold successfully placed.” You will receive an email later, telling you that your book is ready to be picked up at the Circulation Desk.

Through the miracle of technology, you can conduct that search on your smart phone or on your own laptop at home or office. Then you can come into the John C. Hitt Library and pick up your book, once you have received the email that it is available.

TL;DR

  1. Click Books/Catalog
  2. Search
  3. Click Place a Hold
  4. Login
  5. Wait for an email telling you your book is ready for pickup
  6. Pickup your book at the Circulation desk on the main floor of the John C. Hitt Library
