New self-service library hold system

To make holds (requested books) more accessible the Boole Library is introducing a Self-Service hold shelf system


  • The books will be kept in the High Demand Collection on Q-Floor of the Boole Library.


  • Hold books can now be collected during Boole Library opening hours.


  • Books are shelved under your surname
  • Check out the item using the self-issue machine in the High Demand Collection area.
  • Return items as normal through the book return unit

You will not be able to borrow a hold if:

  • You have fines of over €5 on your account
  • You already have the maximum number of checkouts on your account
  • You have overdue items on your account

This is a pilot project in the Boole Library only, it does not apply to Brookfield and CUH libraries.
