What can I do if all copies of the book I need are on loan to other users?

The QCat Library Catalogue will tell you whether or not copies of a book are available for you to borrow.

If QCat shows that all copies are already on loan to other users, click the Request it button:

Log in with your QUB number and password.

A pop-up window will open. Use the dropdown menu to choose the Library from which you'd like to collect your requested copy of the book. Then click Submit.

That's it! One of the users who currently has the book will be contacted by the Library and asked to return their copy early so that you can borrow it.

If, after you click Submit, you see an error message that says "Sorry, request cannot be accepted. Local copy is available", please contact the Library and staff will advise you.
