Here's how you can view the items you've placed on hold and their current status:

My APL holds

Go to My APL: On Hold, log in, if prompted. Look for the status icon next to the item:

You can see the deadline for picking up your hold just below the Ready icon:

You can also change the holds view by clicking Sort by and making a new selection:

Drop down menu that allows you to sort by status, hold position, expires, title, author, or format.
