Book checked out by others? Try the following ways to get a copy.
Option 1. HKALL - faster
HKALL is a shared platform by 8 UGC-funded university libraries in Hong Kong. Eligible users can request a book from other libraries when the copy in PolyU is not available. The book will be then delivered to our Library in about 2-3 working days for pick-up.
Option 2. Place a hold (wait in the queue)
Place a hold to reserve a book when the book is only available in our Library and there are no available copies from HKALL. After you place a hold, the previous user will be asked to return the book in about 28 days.
Follow the steps below to request a book from HKALL or reserve a local copy when HKALL does not apply.
