Christmas 2018 Information

You can still reserve books that are on loan during the Christmas Vacation but we won't ask for them to be returned until after 3 January.

We will still recall books with reservations on them until 13 December so please continue to check your emails in case you have to return anything before you leave for Christmas.

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.

How do I collect my reservation?

We'll email your University email when your reservation is ready to collect.

You can also check your Library account.

Reservations are held for 6 days from the date of your email.

Collect your reservations on the self-service reservations shelves on the ground floor of the Sheila Silver Library and Headingley Library but please ask Library staff if you need any help - you need your Campus Card and PIN.
