We recommend that you use our Click and Collect service via the Library Catalogue to request items in advance.

How do I use the Click and Collect service to request books?


There are two types of slot you can book.

  • Collection and Return

Book this 10 minute slot if you want to return books, or if you have received an email to say your Click and Collect book is available to collect. 

  • Browse the Shelves

Book this 30 minute slot if you want to browse the shelves yourself. We recommend the use of Click and Collect if possible. If browsing the shelves you should borrow a trolley, follow the one-way system and observe social distancing guidelines. 

When can I book a slot? 

You should only visit the Library during the sessions that you are timetabled on campus. If you are not allocated to come in on a certain date, it is really important that you stay at home and make use of online library resources and support. 

If you have requested a book via Click and Collect, please wait for the notification email that it is available before booking a collection slot.


What happens once I've made a booking? 

Once your booking has been approved, you will receive an email confirming your slot.

Please arrive for your booking promptly, and if browsing ensure you have time to issue your books before your slot is up. 

You must wear a mask or face covering while on campus. You will need your University of Bolton ID card to gain access to the building.
