General Library Guide: Reservations

Your guide to our Libraries and the services we provide


Can I reserve books?

You can place reservations on books from other campus libraries. You can also reserve books that are out on loan to other readers through LibrarySearch. An email is sent out to the current borrower to return the item. Once the item is returned the Library notifies you by email when it is ready for collection.

Which books may not be reserved?

Any material which are on the shelves at your home site library.

How many reservations can I make?

You may reserve up to 5 books at any one time.

Important Information

You need to check your email or Library account to find out whether your reservation is ready for collection.

  • Reserved books are held for 7 days.

Canceling reservations

We encourage you to cancel any reservations you no longer require, for the benefit of the next person in the queue.

This can be done through My Library Account
