Why can't I make a request?

There may be times when you cannot place a request on an item.

  • You cannot make a request on an item that is not on loan.
  • You cannot make a request on laptops for loan. If all laptops are on loan you must come to a Library Helpdesk in person with your borrower’s card and staff can place the request for you. Laptops can only be borrowed by matriculated students at University of Edinburgh.
  • You cannot request an item if you have reached your request limit. The request limit for each person is 10 items; this includes items waiting to be collected.
