Placing a hold on a book

What do you do when the book you need for that assignment is out on loan?

Don't Panic!!

If you wish to borrow a book that is already out on loan, you can reserve it.
1.     Go to the library catalogue: 
2.     Search for the book.     
You can only reserve a book if all copies are currently on loan i.e. not “on shelf

3.     Click the Request icon at the top of the page.

4.     Enter your name, student number and PIN.
If you do not have a PIN leave it blank.  Click on submit and it will prompt you to create a PIN for yourself.  Create a PIN that you will remember the next time you need it.  If you have difficulty creating a PIN, contact us at

5. You should get confirmation of the reservation on screen.
When the book is returned it will be held for you, at the library desk, for 3 working days.

An email will be sent to your student email address.
