Reserve a book

Our reservation service enables you to reserve a book if all copies are on loan. It also allows you to reserve an available book if you would like it sent to a different site library for collection there.

You collect reserved items from the reservation shelves located in the library. We file them using your surname and you use one of the Self Service machines for borrowing.
