How can I reserve a book?

Registered readers can request items electronically through the Library’s online catalogue. A maximum of 15 items can be held for 7 days after the date of request. If you do not have access to the internet, you may request up to 2 items through our telephone service.

Items may be held for further use after initial collection, up to 7 days after the date of request. Callslips must be left in the item.

You must show your reader card or other form of identification when collecting items held in your name. Items in use or held on reserve can not be requested, nor reserved for use later, by another reader.
