You can check the status of your reservations at My Account. If you are no longer interested in the reservation, you can cancel it from here.


If you do not see the book button or do not let you make the reservation:

  • you have exhausted the maximum number of simultaneous reservations to which you are entitled
  • you already have another copy of the same document
  • no copy is available for your user profile
  • click on the name of each library in case you need to book a specific volume
