How do I request an item?

 
  • Do a search, identify the title you want to request.
  • To request it in the catalog you may either click on the word "Available" on the Results (hit list) page, or click on the Request tab on the Record (single-title display) page.
  • If you have not already logged in to, you'll be prompted to do so at this point. Log in with your library account number. If you do not already have a VuFind username, click on Create New Account. Your account needs to be "profiled" with your library borrower ID. Once you've set this up, you never have to worry about it again (unless your borrower ID changes). If you've never told VuFind what your library borrower ID is, then go to the Your Account page and click on the User Account tab at the bottom of the list on the right. Enter your borrower ID, last name and library affiliation.
  • Select the location at which you would like to pick up the item and submit the request.
  • In the future, all you'll need to do is sign on with your username and password. You won't need to remember your borrower ID (unless you've decided to use that as your username) in order to request materials via the library catalog.
