Online forms unavailable

Due to essential maintenance, some of our online forms will be unavailable on Thursday 18 October from 6pm to Saturday 20 October 8pm. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Request items from storage (stack requests)

You may request any material you find in our online catalogue. Some material may be in a book stack and will require library staff to retrieve it in advance of your visit. The item will usually have an A or B in front of the classification number and a floor level location of ‘Lower Ground Floor Stack’, Level 5 or Level 6.

Fiction, children’s and music items can usually be retrieved on demand. Requests should be made from the relevant service desks on the mid and lower ground floors.

For non-fiction please use the online form to make an advance request. Library staff will always endeavour to meet your request in time for your visit. We would ask a minimum of 5 days' notice.

Requests in person can be made at the Level 2 customer service desk and all non-fiction items that are retrieved will be made available from this desk too.

NB this does not include material in the Wolfson Centre for Archival Research, which are requested separately.
