Access the catalog of books from the library's homepage by clicking "Books, videos, and more" from the DVC Library's homepage. You can also search for books using the OneSearch box in the center of the page.

Search and select the book you are looking for.

Select "Request / hold" from the choices at the top of your screen after you have "clicked" on the book you would like.

Login to the DVC catalog using your last name, student ID number.

Select the pick up location from the menu.

Press submit.

Staff will pull the book and notify you via email or telephone when it is ready for pick up.

Holds will remain available for you to pick up for 10 days.
