If a book is not available (In Library) or if you are off-campus and searching for books to pick up at a future date, you can request the book be held for you. Note the timeframes outlined below for each type of request.
You can request books through two different methods: the Request feature in the library catalog can be used for items that are owned by Brock University, or by requesting the item via RACER, our Interlibrary Loan service. Here is a chart to help you decide the best method to use:
|Book Location||Method to Use|
|In Library||Use Request feature to place a hold on the book|
|Due YY-MM-DD||Use Request feature to recall the item from the current borrower|
|Not owned by Brock University||RACER Interlibrary Loan Book Request|
If you still cannot find your book, you can request the book using RACER, our Interlibrary Loan service. If you are a first-time user of this service, you will need to set up a RACER account. Consult the Interlibrary Loan service page for detailed instructions.
