Can I see what items I have requested through inter-library loan?

Viewing the status of your inter-library requests:

  1. Go to the Texas Group Catalog.
  2. Hover over "Texas Group Catalog" in the upper left corner and choose My Requests.
  3. Choose “Garland/Nicholson Memorial Library System” as your home library.
  4. Click on “Continue.”
  5. Enter your library card number.
  6. Enter your PIN.
  7. Click “Login.”
  8. After signing in, you will see all of your active requests and their statuses:
    • "New" - this is a new request.
    • "Pending" - Currently, the Texas Group Catalog software is sending requests to libraries on your behalf.
    • "Shipped" - the item is on its way to Garland for you!
    • "Received" - the item has been received by the Garland Public Library. Some processing will be required and then it will be sent to your branch for pick up. When it is ready for pick up at your branch, you will get notified just like you get notified for all other holds. You'll have ten days to pick it up after it's ready.

Not seeing your hold? When cancelled, a hold drops off your request list and an email is sent to the email address you provided with an explanation for the cancellation. Also, there is no historical record of your requests. Once the library receives and process the request, it drops off your request list in the Texas Group Catalog.
