Where is the request button and what does it look like
From the Library catalogue the only way to see the request button is to click on the title of a journal, article or book, and not the "view now", "availability" or "vew all editions" links
The request button is circled in the screen shot below. The button may not always be visible on screen - you may need to scroll down to see it.
What will happen when I click on the request button?
- Firstly, login with your SALUS username
- A pre-populated form will appear with all the citation details completed
- Check the details are correct, then select a pickup location if applicable (e.g. if you are requesting a book); or, add a special instruction
- Click request and you're done!
Why am I seeing a request button when the item is immediately accessible?
You may see the request button next to journals or articles with available access, but don't forget the library might only have access to a journal for a certain number of years - e.g. 1999 to 2011, and you require an article from 2014, so the request button will still need to be visible for all years access is not available
