"FREEZE" YOUR RESERVES
Don't lose your place in line just because you're away or too busy
Go to the Minuteman catalog and log into your account using your library card and PIN. Click on your holds and check off those you want to "freeze" on the right side of the screen. Click update list. Icicles will appear around those titles you've frozen and they will stay frozen until you unfreeze them. You will not lose your place on the reserve list.
