Reserving items

To reserve an item you will need to be a library member. You can reserve items in person, by telephone, or online through 'My Account'. If you telephone, please have your library card to hand.

Reserve an item online

Search the online catalogue then select Reserve Selections. You will be prompted for your card number and PIN if you are not already logged in.

If you have forgotten your PIN you can request a new one online. Please make sure that we have your correct e-mail address on our database.

You will need to choose your Pickup Location - this is the Birmingham Library from which you want to collect your item. If you are a home customer, please choose LSAH as your pickup location.

The rest of the choices are optional:

  • Titles required: if you have reserved more than one copy of the same title but you only require one then set this to 1.
  • Not required after: this is set to 6 months, if you have not received your reservation after 6 months the system will automatically cancel it. You can change this to which ever option is appropriate.
