Request a book on loan

If a book I want is out on loan, can I request it?

You can request a book on loan! To request items that other borrowers have out on loan log into OneSearch using your Pheme credentials.

  • Search for the item you want to borrow.
  • Click on the "Check Availability" link beneath the title information for that item.
  • Click on "Request a loan".
  • Select Library Pickup location.
  • Click on "Request". 

This opens a window where you can submit your request by logging in using your Pheme credentials.

As soon as you place a request the item will be due back from the current borrower in 7 days. You will be notified by email when your book is ready for pickup and you can check its progress in My Library Account. A requested item is held for you in the library for 4 days before it is either returned to the main collection or notification is sent to the next requestor.

More information is available in the Request an item on loan guide.
