Q. How do I request an item?

Answer

Please note: you will only be able to place a request on items that are out on loan (i.e. you cannot reserve an available item in advance of your visit). Requests can only be made where all of the 1 week and 3 week loan copies are unavailable.

To request a book or DVD, log into your Library account first. Then find the book/DVD on the catalogue and click on the title to view the item, which displays the number of copies and their availability. If all of the 1 week loan and 3 week loan copies are unavailable, you can place a request. To do this, click on the link to place a request.

Then click to confirm the request:

Requested items can be seen on your Library account:

Requests are not allowed if you already have a copy of the same book on loan. You may only make one request per book.

When you place a request for a book, the library system will allocate the first book returned, regardless of loan period. It is not possible to request a particular loan type.
