To reserve a book from The Hive or another county library in Worcestershire

  1. Search for the book in Library Search as usual
  2. If you see a link labelled ‘Check Availability’, select that now.  Otherwise continue as shown below
  3. Select the Place Reservations button.  The system will log you in.
  4. Select the Place Reservations button again, and choose the library you wish to collect the book from
  5. Confirm the reservation by selecting ‘Place reservation’
  6. Read the message that appears on the screen
  7. We will send you an email when your reservation is ready to collect.

If you have a University of Worcester email address, you can reserve two-week and three-week loan books that are currently on loan or that are currently on the shelves.

If you don’t have a University of Worcester email address but you do have a library card for The Hive you can reserve three-week loan books from any county library in Worcestershire for a charge of 80p per reservation.
