Placing A Hold

If an UNCP item is checked out, or if you want to request items from FSU or UNCW, then you need to place a hold using BraveCat. In order to do this, you will need a library Personal Identification Number (PIN).

To place a hold request, you must be in the BraveCat record for the item that you want. Click the Hold Item button, located at the top of the screen (see image below).


You will need to use your login and PIN in order to place holds on items in BraveCat or use electronic databases from off campus.

All library-related login screens (with the exception of Course Reserves and Document Delivery) contain three login boxes. Put your first or last name (not both) in the first box. Enter your University ID (your Banner number - if you do not know your Banner number, then log into BraveWeb to locate it.) in the second box, and enter your PIN in the third box and click the Submit button (see image below).


You will receive a brief confirmation. To return to the item record click the Regular Display button. To return to the result page click the Return to List button.

You will be notified when your items are available for pick up at the Circulation Desk in the Library. If you are a distance education student then click here for more information.

For assistance with PINs, access to electronic resources, or help with your research, please contact the Reference Desk, by email at, or by phone at 910.521.6656. You can also use the Ask-A-Librarian webform, which is available at
