Ordering/reserving a medium

BIB 20-030

What you need to know

Media listed in the library catalogue (OPAC) and in the BOSS search portal under "Availability" as "Borrowed", can be reserved using the self-service function or alternatively by contacting the library.

With the status "Available", searched media in the other campus libraries can be ordered by users to be picked up in their own library or in the other library.

As soon as the reserved or ordered media is available at the selected campus library, you will receive an email with pick-up information.

What you have to do

  1. Search for the media in the library catalogue OPAC or in the BOSS search portal (Helpcard BIB 20-020).

  2. Open the title in the full view.

  3. Click on the green "Order/Reserve" button.

  4. Then confirm that you are a member of the university.

    • Your HFU account is the account with which you register for example in Webmail or FELIX.

  6. Select pick-up location and notification request.

  7. Click "Continue/Continue to order".

    • The order request was successful.

    • If you requested a notification, you will receive notification by email as soon as the medium is available on the campus requested.
      The medium is available for pick-up for 7 days from the date of notification.
