If all loan copies of an item are unavailable it is possible to place a hold on (reserve) the next available copy using the Library catalogue. Alternatively, the user may ask staff at the circulation desk to place the hold for him.
When a copy is ready to collect, the Library sends a notice by e-mail to the user, if the e-mail address is on his Library record.
Reserved copy is held at the circulation desk for one week. Reserved books are held at their home library.
