Media Hold RequestMedia Hold requests are used by teaching faculty, staff and graduate teaching assistants who need to use a specific library-owned media item for academic purposes. Once requests are submitted, the item is pulled in advance and placed on the hold shelf at the Ekstrom Library Media Resources Desk.
- Requests are processed in the order they are received.
- Media Holds are accepted up to one year in advance.
- Due to the popularity of certain titles in our collection, titles may not be available on certain dates. Notification of conflict will be sent via email.
- Availability of late requests (made the day before or day of) cannot be guaranteed.
What if you want something to be available for you and your students to use all semester? These are called Course Reserves. You can use the Course Reserve form to request these.
Using the information available in Minerva, fill out the form as completely as possible.
