Request and Receive

Requesting books from the Library.
Due to the national lockdown announced by the Government, it is not possible for the Library to continue offering Request and Collect.
We are committed to continually support College staff and students and have introduced a alternative service.
If you require resources, which you cannot access electronically, we are offering a Request service where we can post the books out to you.
Use the Library Catalogue to locate the items.
In the list of results there is the option to Request a Copy of an item.
Alternately you can open up the item record and use the Request a Copy option.
This may be on the left side of the screen if you are using a PC or tablet, or at the bottom if you are using a mobile device.
Once you have selected to Request a Copy you will be asked to Log in to your Library account.
Your College number is the one printed on your card and the PIN is your year of birth.
You will now see a summary of your request.
Along with the message "Please check you College email for a message to confirm your address. We require your confirmation before sending any items out".
Click on Confirm request to continue.
An email will be sent to you from the Library asking you to confirm your address and that you are happy for the items to be posted to you.
The Status of the requests will be shown as Pending while any items are located.
All correspondence with the Library must be done using your College email
Once you have replied to our email we will locate and issue the item(s) to you before posting.
If you do not emailed us the details we require then we are afraid we will not be able to post items out to you.
You are able to check your Library Account to see the status of any requests.
Upon receiving the items we ask that you acknowledge you have received them by emailing us.

We encourage all students to use our online resources. This will contribute to us reducing transmission in the library.
