What is a hold / request / reserve?

What is a hold / request / reserve? 

What is the different between these? 


Hold, request and reserve all apply to the same thing. 

At Health Library Ireland we call it hold. 

A hold allows you to tell the libraries that you want to borrow a particular book using the library system. 

The library system then identifies books that are needed by patrons and prompts them to collect them from the shelves or send them to the library the patron wants to collect it from.
