Reservations & Requests

Reservations

You can reserve any item that is on loan. There is no charge.

You can reserve items in several ways:

  • Visit the Library and fill in a reservation form.
  • Call the main Library number (+44 1481 720392) with the details of the item you wish to reserve. You can also send these by email to ga@library.gg or by post.
  • Reserve online via the online catalogue. Search the catalogue for the item you want and click the 'reserve this item' button. You will need your library card number. Please note that you can only reserve items that are already in our collection - to request an item not in our collection, read on below.

You will be notified by email or by post when the item is ready for you to collect.

Reservations placed online are not available the same day. If you want to reserve an item that is not on loan please contact us.

Inter-Library Loans

Most libraries in the UK co-operate with each other to lend and borrow books. Articles from newspapers and periodicals may also be obtained.

You can request:

  • Out-of-print fiction
  • Non-fiction, both old and new
  • Theses and dissertations
  • Conference proceedings
  • Periodical and newspaper articles
  • Orchestral and vocal music sets (advance bookings recommended)
  • Plays

It is not possible, however, to borrow non-book materials such as CDs and DVDs.

There is a charge for this service. For more information please contact us.
