Requesting items

Through our library catalogue, you can search our collection online and find out immediately if the item you are looking for is available for borrowing or if somebody has taken it out already. If the status of your item is “on loan”, choose the tab “get doument” on the page with the details for the item you searched and then click on “reservation” to request the item. You can see when the current borrower’s loan period is expected to expire and whether other users have already requested this item before you ("total of reservations") on the same page under the tab “Holdings”. If your search returned multiple results, just click on the linked title of the item to access the page with the detailed information for the item you are looking for.

Please note:
If the copy of the item has already been requested by another user (indicated by “total of reservations: 1”), the copy will become available for you about 6 weeks after the current borrower has returned the book.

You will find a list of all books you have requested in your user account on the page “Reservations”.

Books available for collection
Once the previous borrower returns the book, it will be made available so you can collect it at the service desk. You will not be sent a written notification that your book is available. You can check the availability of your requested items in your user account (on the page “Reservations”).

Cancelling a request
If it turns out that you do not need an item you have requested after all, you can cancel your request. Just visit the page “Reservations” in your user account on OPAC and click on “Cancel reservation” next to the item in question.
