Reservation

If the item you are interested in is already checked out by another user, you can place a reservation, once you make sure that no other copy is available.

You can reserve an item from your personal account in the Library Catalogue. Select <UCY Login> or <Request> (if you are already viewing the bibliographic record) or <Reserve this item (if currently checked out) if you are viewing your search results.  You will be asked to enter the username and password you use for University of Cyprus online services (such as email).

When the item is returned to the Library you will be notified by phone that is at the Main Library waiting for you to pick it up (unless there is a previous reserve placement by another user). If you do not request in person from the Library within 7 working days, the item is returned to the stacks or may be checked out by the next user who has placed a reservation.

Items that have been reserved by more than one user can be checked out for up to 7 days on a first-reserve, first-served basis.

You cannot reserve Short Loan Collection items.

Items that have been requested by more than one user can be checked out for up to 7 days on a first-request, first-served basis.
