Exactly how long your request will take to arrive depends on the day and time when you place your hold and which library you choose as your delivery location. As a general guide:
|Holds placed...||Items will arrive...|
|Monday-Thursday||Within 24 hours|
|Friday before 19.30 during term time||Requests for delivery to the Social Science Library, Radcliffe Science Library and Old Bodleian Library (Upper and Lower Reading Rooms) will be delivered on Saturday morning by 12 noon. Items requested to other Libraries will be delivered Monday morning|
|Friday during the vacation||Monday |
|Saturday & Sunday||Monday|
For more detailed information about delivery times consult the SOLO Guide Delivery Times
Initially books are kept for a period of one week, although items can be renewed indefinitely so long as they are not requested by another reader. You can keep your Closed Stack books at the library by passing them to staff at the library desk and asking for them to be kept for you to view again. Closed Stack items can be renewed on SOLO in the same way as borrowed books (see: 'How do I renew books?')
You may place a maximum of ten requests at any one time.
