Items in open-shelf areas should be retrieved from the shelves by the users. Look up the shelf number of the item you want to use, so you can find the book at its location. No request options are displayed in Primo for such items (except for those in the University Library Open Stacks – see below). Information on loan options (outside loan, reading-room loan, loan periods) for items and request options are displayed only after you have signed in to Primo. Request options are displayed only for items for which a request is possible.
The University Library Open Stacks are a special case: You can either retrieve books yourself or request them.
Reading-room items, as a rule, are excluded from loan (as so-called non-circulating holdings). You will have to read such items on site or make photocopies, as needed.
