Check out the following videos to learn how to search for books in the library catalog (and place a hold) or use OneSearch to locate books available at Fordham University Libraries.
Looking for ebooks only? Select the "Online Resources" option under the library dropdown limiter before your press Search in the catalog.
You may Place a Hold on a book and have it delivered to your desired campus.
Once you press the Place Hold button on the Item Details page of a catalog record, enter your Fordham ID number without the preceding "A", PIN, and select your campus.
Every effort will be made to deliver books within 1-2 business days. A notification email will be sent to your Fordham email account when the item is available for pickup at your home library. Items will remain on hold for 5 business days.
If you have further questions about how this works, ask at the Reference Desk, Ask a Librarian, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Borrowing books that are not available at any of the Fordham University Libraries requires assistance from InterLibrary Loan.
