Q. How do you place a hold on an EBSCOhost ebook?

I'm receiving a message that my eReserve ebook is unavailable when I try to link to it from my Blackboard course. How do a place a hold on an ebook?


If the eBook you have chosen to download is in use by another patron, you have the opportunity to place a hold on the eBook to download when it becomes available. Holds are only available for eBooks found on the EBSCOhost platform.

Sign into your personal My EBSCOhost folder account (if you don't have an account you can sign up for free) and click Place Hold to be notified when that eBook is available for you to download.

The eBook is placed in the Holds area of your My EBSCOhost Folder. When the eBook is available, you are notified via the e-mail address associated with your account and the eBook appears in the Checkouts area of your folder.
