Place Hold & Faculty/Staff Departmental Office Delivery

The Place Hold service allows you to ask library staff to pull items from the ECU Libraries' shelves for your use and allows you to be added to a waiting list to be notified when a checked out item is returned. Requested items from Joyner Library and the Music Library are usually pulled within 24-48 hours. Requested items from the Laupus Health Sciences Library are usually pulled within 48-72 hours. You may place holds on materials in all three ECU libraries and choose the library where you would like to pick up the items. Faculty and staff who have offices on-campus may also request delivery of items to their departmental offices using Place Hold.

Questions about office delivery or pickup may be directed to or 328-6518.
