Q. How do I reserve a book?


Please note, that you can only reserve a book that’s currently on loan. The easiest way to make a reservation is to log on to the Tamcat database.

Find the book you want from the database by using the search. If all the copies of the book are on loan you can make a reservation. After logging in, click “Place a Request”. Choose the collection you want to reserve the book from and whether you want to pick up the book at Linna or Arvo. Then submit the request. You’ll get a notification that tells you if the reservation was submitted successfully (and if not, why the submission has failed).

From your own Tamcat account you can check your queue number.

When the book you’ve reserved has been returned to the library, you’ll get a notification via e-mail. The information is also visible on your Tamcat account. On the e-mail there’s also the deadline by which you need to pick up the book before the reservation is canceled.
