Placing and removing holds

Watch this video to find out how to reserve books on loan to other Library users and how to remove your holds if you change your mind. This guidance is also available to read on our Placing & cancelling a hold using Enterprise page.

Please note that we have made some changes to the way holds are organised on the shelf since this video was recorded. When you come to collect your hold look for the book's Call Number. If there are multiple copies of the book on the 'Holds' shelf simply take the copy under your Campus Card number (the number in the bottom right-hand corner of your Campus Card). If you have any problem locating your hold please ask at the Information Desk. This video will be updated shortly. August 2018
