Borrowing and Reserving

How do I place a reservation?

Remember because we automatically renew items on loan, you will need to place a reservation on something you want if it is on loan to someone else. 

You can place a reservation on resources via the Library Catalogue:

  • log in with your Username and Password.
  • click on Place Reservation and select the Library you wish to collect your reservation from. 
  • you can also have it sent to you via Pay-to-Post.
  • students and staff can't place reservations on Short Loans and only staff can place reservations on restricted audio-visual items.
  • you can check your place in the reservations queue via Self Service on the Library Catalogue.

You can have up to 5 reservations at a time. Students registered for Offsite loans or Disability Advice can place 10 reservations at a time.
