Can I place a “Hold” on an eBook or Audiobook that is currently checked out by another patron?

Yes, if your institution's administrator has enabled this functionality, you are able to place a Hold on an eBook or Audiobook that is currently checked out by another user. When placing a Hold, the eBook or Audiobook appears in the Holds area of your personal My EBSCOhost folder.

When the eBook or Audiobook becomes available to you, you are notified via the email address you provided when placing the Hold, and it is added to the Checkouts area of your folder for downloading.

Note: If your institution does not offer download capability, Holds can still be placed on eBooks that you would like to read online.
