The library is still here for you but some of our services may look a little different at the moment.

For details about all of our resources and services, visit Getting Started With the Library.

For full details about using the library during the national lockdown, please see What does the national lockdown mean for using the Library?

The Library offers a Click and Collect service, which enables you to reserve available print items held in the Sydney Jones and Harold Cohen Libraries.

  1. Search the Library Catalogue for the item you wish to reserve and check if there are any printed copies available.
  2. When you find the item you want, click the 'Reserve for Click & Collect' button at the top of the screen and log in. You'll be asked to create a PIN if you've not logged in before.

Please note: you are allowed up to 8 requests at any one time. If you need to place further requests after you have reached the maximum amount, you can do so once you have checked out some of your requested items. 

Items are retrieved from the shelves 3 or 4 times a day. You should request your material in advance to allow it to be retrieved in time for your visit.

You will receive an email when your items are ready to collect. 

We'll hold on to your reservations for three working days before making them available for other people to request.

From the 11th January 2021 ALL Click & Collect items will be available for collection from the Sydney Jones Library only
