How to Request an Item

Can't find what you want?

You have several options when requesting an item not available in the Koller library. If we or another library within the system already owns the item, you can put a hold on it. A library staff member can place the hold for you or you can go online to the Merlin Catalog system and place your own hold. You will be notified by phone or email when the item comes in.
You can also make a request for purchase. You provide the title and/or author of the item to the librarian. If the librarian feels the item will be popular to others in the area, the item will be purchased. If you made the purchase request, you will be the first to use the item.
If nobody within our library system owns the item and we do not purchase it, we can do a search nationwide using WISCAT and request it for you through inter-library loan. This may take a couple of weeks or more since the item is being sent from outside our system. Talk to your librarian for further information.
