Reserving resources

The Reservation service allows you to reserve items currently out on loan and you will be placed in a queue for the next available copy.

Please note the Reservation service is not a retrieval service. If the item is available on the shelves you are expected to visit the library and collect it yourself. However you may request cross site delivery if the item is not available at the campus where you are based.

Staff and students at Sunderland are not permitted to reserve items at the London Campus Library or to request Sunderland stock items be transferred to London campus Library for collection.

We encourage you to visit both campus libraries to consult and borrow our full range of resources. If the item you require is out on loan there may be an e copy that you can access immediately without having to place a reservation,  or you may like to look at other items with similar titles they may have the information you require. Library staff are always happy to discuss your needs with you.

How to place a reservation:

  • Find the item you need on the library catalogue
  • If the item is available in the library that you wish to collect it from go to the shelves and pick it up yourself. Please note that if you proceed with the request and the item is available in the library at the campus where you are based you will be unable to select that library as the collection site
  • If the item is out on loan click on the 'Reserve this item' button and log in using your University id and password
  • Select the library you want to collect your reservation from and click on the 'Reserve' button

Please only place a reservation on an item if you’re able to collect it.  If you no longer need an item logon to your account and cancel it so it can be made available to the next person in the queue.

When your reservation is ready for you to collect you will receive a notification to your University email account and the item will be placed on the reservation shelves at your collection site. Please collect and issue to yourself using the adjacent Self Issue machine. Items will be held for you for a period of 7 days from the date of the notification, after which they will be removed and made available for the next person in the queue.
