You may request up to 20 items. You may not request an item if you owe $5 or more in fines.

We will email or call you when your item is ready for pickup. Held items are across from the Circulation Desk and are organized by last name.

We hold requested items for 7 days. If you can’t pick up an item in time, contact the Circulation Desk at 508-647-6520 or circulation@morseinstitute.org. In some cases, we can extend the pickup date by a few days.

Manage requests

Sign in. Select Requests.

  • To cancel a request, check the Cancel box beside the item.
  • “To freeze (temporarily stop) a request, check the Freeze box beside the item. To unfreeze, uncheck the box. If you will be unable to pick up your item for an extended period of time, freezing a request keeps your place in a long hold list. If the item you requested has few holds, you should cancel your request, not freeze it.”
  • To change a pickup location, select your preferred location from the dropdown menu.

To complete changes, select Update List at the bottom. You may need to select Yes to confirm..
