If the book you need is on loan to someone else, you can place a hold on it, so that when it next becomes available you will be notified and it will be kept for you in the Hold Request Collection Room behind the Library & IT Service Desk.
If the book you want is in high demand, you may be placed in a queue, but at least you know you will get access to the book once its your turn.
You will see from the results that the book is checked out to another user.
The Library proactively supports and enhances the learning, teaching, and research activities of the University. The Library acts as a catalyst for your success as University of Galway’s hub for scholarly information discovery, sharing, and publication.
