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.
- Select the 'Not available - click for more details' link beneath the title information for that item.
- Select 'Request item'.
- Select Library Pickup location.
- Select 'Send Request'.
- A note will appear: "Request placed. You can monitor or cancel your request in your My Library Account."
As soon as you place a request the item will be due back from the current borrower in 7 days (or 10 days if the current borrower is in a regional area or offshore). 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.
