From 7th April, books can be ordered from Closed Stack or Remote storage to the ‘Upper RR (Self-Collect)’ point in the Old Upper Reserve (Catte Street side).

Modern books and single journal parts can be ordered to the Self-Collect shelves.

Other items, such as post-1701 Special Collections, large books, multiple part items or non-book items such as microfilms, must be ordered to the ‘Upper RR (Staffed Desk)’. Upper Reading Room Self-Collect

This is how the menu will display on SOLO when the ‘Upper RR (Self-Collect)’ opens.

You may have noticed that the Delivery/Pickup Location ‘Upper Reading Room’ has already changed its name to

‘Upper RR (Staffed Desk)’

Up to 10 items may be held per person shared between the two Upper RR Delivery points.

Please ask staff if you require further details of this new service.
