Member of staff helping a student

Our requests policy is aimed at making the system fair by only charging for resources that are in high demand or have been requested by other library customers.

If our libraries do not stock the resources you require, please use our Need More? service. Many UWTSD students and staff can also take advantage of borrowing schemes to join other library services throughout the UK. Please visit Using Other Libraries for further details.

If you find an item on our catalogue that you want to take out on loan, but it is not available or it is missing from the shelves, you can place a request to reserve the item. Once the item becomes available to loan, you will get an email notifying you that it is ready for collection.

Once you receive an email notifying you about the availability of an item you will have 7 days from that date to pick up the item.

We recommend that if you are going away, you return your items before you leave or be prepared to send them back to us via post should they be requested by another library customer.
