Placing a Reservation (Hold) on items currently on loan

Bite size video guide: How to reserve a book which is out on loan (2:24)

You can reserve items which are on loan to other readers by placing a 'hold' on an item:

We will normally keep the books for you at the Issue Desk on Level 2 for 7 days.  Books are held for two weeks during vacations.

If there is a queue of people with reservations on a book, it will be recalled shortly after you borrow it.  But you will be able to keep it for 7 days.

You can check what items you have reserved using the Library Catalogue to view your Borrower Record.

If for any reason you cannot place a hold on an item, please see the Issue Desk staff.
