Items in our catalogue

  • Most items will be found on the open shelves.
  • Books and other documents are filed by call number.
  • Journals are filed by title.

If an item is NOT on the shelf, or is at a different location, you may request it.

Requests  (staff or student number required)

Our library system, Voyager, allows you to make a number of different requests.  After  finding an item in the OPAC , display the full record by clicking on the title, then click on the ’Requests’  tab at the top of the page. Enter your staff or student number and last name and then select from the list of requests in the box shown.

Types of requests

Place a hold  -  If the item you have found in the OPAC has been borrowed by someone else, you may request that it be held for you when it is returned.

Recall  - If the item you have found in the OPAC has been borrowed by someone else, and the due date is a long time away, you may be able to get it earlier by asking that it be recalled.

At a different location  - If the item you have found in the OPAC is at a different location, you may ask to have it brought to your location for you to pick up. If you are at the Notre Dame or Exchange District campuses, select ’Call Slip’. If you are at any other location, select ’Off-campus / Distance Request’ and put your location information into the ’comments’ section of the online form.
