A book on a reading list is always on loan, what can I do?

A book on a reading list is always on loan, what can I do?

Aimed at:  Edinburgh Napier’s staff & students.

If the book you want is out on loan, place a request to have it held for you next.
It may also be worth checking LibrarySearch to see if there is an e-book version.

If you know that a reading list item is always in use, we have a range of options we can use to try to keep books circulating:

  • If a book is out on loan and is requested by someone else, it will not automatically renew and we will recall it.
  • We can investigate alternative formats.
  • We can digitise key chapters for specific modules.
  • We can change the loan time.  

If you know a book is in high demand, please contact your Subject Librarian.

Staff: Go to the My Librarian intranet page.
