Can I reserve a book?

Last Updated: Sep 22, 2021 Views: 113

Yes. To request an item you can use our click and borrow service. 

Go to and search the library catalogue to find the item that you want to borrow.

Once you have found the item and clicked on that record you will be able to 'Place a reservation' (this is on the left of the webpage).

A pop up notice will appear, please read carefully (if the item is at the collection library it is quicker to just get it off the shelf yourself as reservations can take 48 hours to process).

Once you have clicked the 'Continue' button you will be presented with the reservation page.

Select the library you want the pickup location and 'confirm the reservation'.

You will receive an email when the item is ready for collection. We will hold it for 7 days. 

Please remember to borrow the item on self service on collection.
