Stacks retrieval service

Stacks retrieval services are not currently available for library visitors, i.e., users without paid library card access.

All current library users with borrowing privileges may request material to be delivered from the stacks by using the REQUEST A HOLD feature in the library catalogue.

Staff will retrieve desired items for visitors to use in-house. Items may be requested, and picked up at the 1st floor Loans desk according to the following schedule.
