Q. What is a vacation stop on holds?
Can I suspend my holds for awhile without losing my place in the waiting list?
A vacation stop is used when, for example, you've placed a hold on library material and don't want item(s) to become available to check out while you're unable to pick up within eight days. Since a vacation stop can be placed per item, some people use it to stagger their holds so that multiple books don't become available at the same time.
To find the vacation stop setting:
- Sign in to your account in the catalog
- Open "My Account" from the navigation bar
- Open "Review My Account"
- Under the Holds heading, use the checkbox to select a hold to edit
- Set up your vacation stop dates and add the stop
