How to place a HOLD on a book in OPAC - Online Public Access Catalog at NPC

Instructions for placing a HOLD on an item in the library catalog.


If we don't have the material you need, we can borrow it from another library.

You may request materials from an item found on the WorldCat database by following the instructions and guidelines listed below and completing an InterLibrary Loan Request Application.


  • Check the NPC library catalog to be sure we don't own the item.

  • Check all library databases (link below) to be sure we do not have access (each database will display the publications it contains).

  • Check your local public or school library as well.

  • If the item is still not found, go to the OCLC WorldCat (link below) database and find the title or ask a librarian to help.

  • Note the correct Title, Author, and ISBN of the edition you want.

  • Fill out an NPC Interlibrary Loan Materials Request Form (link below), and be sure to include your library card barcode number.
