Order, reserve, renew
In general, only books at the main library have to be ordered (from the closed stack). At the other branch libraries books usually are freely accessible on the shelves. Borrowed books can be reserved, though.
Order (main library only)
- Search in uni≡kat and click on "locations" in the results list and when necessary (multiple entries) on the big + sign right beside the desired location. In the right column the possible request options are listed.
- If the column "Due date" is empty, the book is in the library. Only books of the main library have to be ordered from the closed stack by clicking "request/reservation".
- If the column "Due date" is empty, the book is in the library.
- A date indicates that another user has borrowed the book until then. You can place a reservation by clicking "request/reservation".
