If you see material in our catalogue (or in OneSearch) that you want to examine, use the Place Hold link and the barcode number on your TWU ID/library card, we'll do the rest and our system will email you when it is ready to pick up.
Library staff pull holds from the shelves once a day; you can always come to the library yourself if you can't wait for us to do it for you.
If you have an item that another user wants to borrow and if you have had that item for more than 21 days, you will get an email asking you to return the material within the next 7 days. Call us if you need a bit of extra time, but be aware that you may be fined 50 cents/day if the material is kept beyond the recall due date.
If the material in question is in high-demand to support a particular course, your instructor can have the material placed on Reserve so that everyone in the class has reasonable access to the material.
If you want to use material that is not held by Alloway Library you can place an InterLibrary Loan request and our staff will work to find it at another library and have it delivered to the library for you..
