Requests from Storage
In order to view the items a request must be made.
Unless specifically stated otherwise, material from storage locations can be delivered to the Berkeley, Hamilton, or John Stearne Medical Library Service Counters by using the Click and Collect procedure and selecting the appropriate location during the process. However, some books - mainly older material - cannot be delivered via Click and Collect and must be requested using a call slip - the catalogue will indicate this - or by staff on behalf of readers. Journals must also be requested by call slip.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, requests for items to be read in the combined Early Printed Books and Manuscripts & Archives Reading Room must be made by Library staff on behalf of readers. To request an item from storage in this case, please contact us via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whether the material can be borrowed depends on the category of material. For example, no-one may borrow material from the Early Printed Books or Manuscripts and Archives storage locations.
The catalogue will tell the user if the item is in storage by listing one of the following locations:
- Early Printed Books Stacks
- Manuscripts Stacks
- Ussher Stacks
- Santry Stacks
- External Storage
