Reserving an item

As of Monday 4 October 2021, if an item you require is already out on loan, you can reserve it online. Find the item on Discover or in the Library Catalogueand click ‘reserve’ on the item record.   

Unless the item is due within a week, the person who has borrowed the item will receive a recall notice and the due date will be reduced to 7 days. They will be unable to renew the item. Once returned, you will receive an email notifying you that it is ready for collection.  

All items are able to be reserved, during both term time and vacation.  

If you’ve chosen to study online and are not currently living in Durham, visit our Resource Request webpage for more information on how you can request access to our print resources.
