To reserve, please follow the steps below:
Check the reading list properly. If it is a book, go to e-Clik and search for the author or title and check the year published to ensure it is the right book. Write the call number then go to the shelf to find the required book.
Sometimes lecturers request the library to keep books and articles at the Red Spot collection. Red Spot items are located behind the Main Counter and can only be borrowed upon request.
If it is an article from a journal, find the title of the journal, or if it is a chapter from a book, find the title of the book from the online catalogue. Write the call number then go the respective shelves. Journals can be found at the Serials Collection on the second floor, whereas a book can be found on the first floor.
The 'reserve' collection means it is a Red Spot Collection which consists of books and articles that are recommended by lecturers to be kept specifically for a certain course for a certain period, sometimes for a whole semester or longer. This is to ensure that all the recommended materials are always available for all the students studying a particular course. The collection is kept behind the Main Counter Loan period is four hours in house use only and an overnight loan before 7:00 pm is allowed but must be returned before 9:00 am the next morning.
To search for items on reserve, go to e-Clik, then click Reserve on the menu. Select the Search Type (Instructor or Course ID) you require. In the box provided, type the lecturer's name if searching by Instructor, but if by course ID, type the course code.
