Things to remember:
If someone has already signed out the book you want, you can 'REQUEST" it, i.e., place a 'HOLD' on it.
Use the 'REQUEST' button at the top of the Detailed record for that book:
The person who currently has the book will get an email asking them to return the book. Plan ahead though - don't leave your library research till the last minute! The person who currently has the book does have the right to keep it for a minimum of two weeks even after it's been 'REQUESTED'.
If three or more people 'REQUEST' a book it will be placed on Short Term Loan. That means that it will be available for much shorter loan periods, e.g., one day loans versus two week loans. And therefore more people will have a chance to sign it out.
