Suspend, freeze or cancel a hold

  • You can cancel, suspend (in My MCL) or freeze (in the Classic Catalog) your holds. A suspended or frozen hold will continue to move up the list but will not be made ready to pick up until you activate it (in My MCL) or unfreeze it (in the Classic Catalog). In My MCL, your suspended and cancelled holds appear on a different tab than your active holds.
