The "Book Bag" feature allows you to place multiple titles in your Book Bag and enter your personal information once at the end of your search to request a group of items at once. The Book Bag is similar to a shopping cart feature found on commercial Websites. Placing titles in your Book Bag does not automatically hold them for you. Follow the steps below to successfully request your items.

  1. Go to the library catalog. You do not have to be logged in to Save Titles.
  2. Search for the title you wish to hold.
  3. When you get to your search results, click the "Save to Book Bag" button to the left of the title, or at the top of the screen, depending on which screen you are viewing in the library catalog .
  4. Continue to search and add titles to your Book Bag until you've finished making your selections. Note that when additional items are added to the Book Bag the browser screen should refresh, however, you will not receive any message to confirm the item has been saved in your Book Bag.
