Description of the hold area (located at 693 Alexander)

All the materials sent here are organized by alphabet into several separate groups or"holds"--ROMAN, GREEK, ARABIC, PERSIAN, HEBREW and TURKISH.

Within each hold, books are arranged by their receipt or item number. All books are still accessible for in-process circulation during this period).

After their respective "hold periods," the books are systematically retrieved by CAMS staff, researched on OCLC for copy and sent forward for cataloging.
