If an item you would like to borrow is currently on loan, you can place a hold on it, and when it is returned we will notify you by email and put it aside for you to collect.

Please note that we cannot hold items longer than 7 days once you have been notified. After that time they will be placed back on the shelves so that other borrowers can use them.

There are several ways to place a hold request:

  • Ring the Library to place a hold request on 02 8838 8940
  • Place a hold online using your library account (see instructions below)



Place a Hold Online

To place a hold online, you will need to Login to your account by clicking on the Login link at the top of the Library webpage.

Once you've logged into your account you can search for the item you'd like to place a hold on.

When you find the item you can click on Request Item to place the hold.

If the request is successful you will see a notification message confirming that the hold request has been placed.

As soon as the item has been returned, you will be notified by email and the item will be put aside for you to collect.
