Requesting an item which is on loan

Did you know that if an item you require is on loan to another user, you can request it back from them?

If an item is on loan to another user, you may place a request through DiscoverEd for it to be returned for you.

The item should usually be returned within one week and when you collect it, depending on whether the requested item is a Short or a Standard Loan item, will be available for you to borrow for one week or longer. You will have 5 days to collect your item, or only 3 days if it is a Short loan item.

You can have up to 10 requests on your record at one time; this includes requests waiting to be collected.

You cannot place a request on Reserve items.
