Click and collect library items

During the 2020-21 Semester 1 period, we have added a "click and collect" option for borrowing library books.

How do I click and collect?

Click and collect allows you to reserve items on the library website and then arrange to come and collect them.

By using this as an alternative to booking a study space to use the library, it helps with social distancing in our spaces.

How will I know when my reserved item is available?

When your reserved items are available for collection you will be sent an email inviting you to book a collection slot online. The email will tell you how to do this. We will hold your items for 7 days.

You will need your ID card to collect your reserved items.

Can I also come into the library to borrow books?

The click and collect service is designed to free up space in the library, to aide with social distancing. If you would prefer to browse the shelves and borrow using the self-service machines, you must pre-book a visit to the library.

Can I ask a question about reserving items or booking a slot?

Yes, please contact us using the chat service below.
