All library items can be reserved in the same way whether they are on loan, in a closed collection or on the library shelf. Reservations for shelf items are only available for books and journals in general collections, not for course books. Reservations are free of charge.
To reserve an item, log in to Volter-database
- Turku University students and personnel log in with utu user-ID and password
- other patrons log in with library card number and Volter password, which can be set and rest at the log in
You will receive an email notice when your reservation is ready for pick up from the library the book belongs to. The collecting period for course books is 3 working days, for other books 5 working days. Reservations from closed collections are collected daily on weekdays and reservations from Feeniks Library's remote stacks are collected on Thursdays.
Reservations are on self-service shelves according to your request ID which begins with your initials. Your request ID remains the same for all your reservations and it can only be found on the pick up notice letter, not at My Account in Volter.
However, if you need to reserve a book from another campus (Rauma, Pori, Turku) you need to contact Interlibrary Services firstname.lastname@example.org. This service is free of charge.
