How can I reserve a book currently on loan to someone else?

Give the loan desk personnel the bibliographic references (title/author) to identify the book.
Generally, the title is enough, but sometimes other information is also necessary. The loan desk personnel will reserve the book for you.

Once the book is back into the library, you will receive an e-mail notification. If you change your mind or you are not able to borrow it within a week, please inform loandesk@sissa.it


If you are not in SISSA:

Consult the Sissa Library catalog and checkĀ  that the book is "On Loan". Then ask loandesk@sissa.it to reserve the book for you. Please remember to provide the following data: title & barcode of the book (it start with some zeroes, e.g. 00000000266262).

  • Please note: the Shelf Location code (e.g. 57.08 CEL) does not identify a book uniquely. In our Library there may be several books with the same shelf location code, but each book has a different barcode which identifies it uniquely.

Once the book is returned to the library, you will receive an e-mail notification. If you change your mind or you are not able to borrow it within a week, please inform loandesk@sissa.it
