How to Place a Hold or Reservation on Library Items Via the Catalogue
What do you do if an item you want to borrow is on loan or is on the shelf of a library you can't get to? You can place a hold or reservation.
If an item is on loan this means that we wait until the item is returned and then we keep it safe and let you know that you can collect it, if you still want it.
