If the item you require is already on loan, you can place a hold on it by logging in to WebCat (with your University Username and Password), finding the item in the catalogue and selecting the Place Hold option.

A recall notice will be sent to the person who has the item, to return the item within seven days from the date it was recalled. Once the item is returned, we will notify you by e-mail, and the item will be kept for you to collect within three days. If you have not collected the item within 3 days, your hold will be canceled.
