Hold feature: books can be pulled for you at the Libraries.

The Seton Hall University Libraries are now offering an online retrieval and hold service. With this service, patrons can request a book, CD, or DVD, and pick it up from the circulation desk of the Walsh, Seminary, or Law Library.

The blue “place a hold” button is located on the right-hand side of book records in our catalog.  When users click on this button, they are prompted to log in using their SHU credentials, and then to choose where they wish to pick up the item.  The item will be retrieved by library staff and held at the designated circulation desk for pickup.  Items will be available 12 hours after the request is made.

To request a book from the Law Library, please use this form:

Law Library Book Request form

We trust that this service represents another step forward in enhancing the accessibility of the University Libraries’ resources, and we look forward to serving you.

If you are a chemist or taking chemistry courses, sign up for a web-based SciFinder account.  You can find the instructions for accessing SciFinder and ChembioDraw on the chemistry research guide.
