If you gave us an email address when you joined the Library, you will receive an email reminder a couple of days before your books are due. You can contact the Library to renew your books, but you can also do it yourself. The email will contain a link to SOLO
You will be back on the SOLO screen, and your name will appear at the top of the screen
You will not be able to renew a book if another reader has reserved it.
You can find more information, including a video tutorial, in the SOLO guide
E-Shelf enables you to save references to books of interest. It is similar to the 'shopping basket' used on many websites. It is particularly useful if you have done a subject search on SOLO and wish to follow up some of the items found.
The reference will now be on your e-Shelf. Click the e-Shelf link beside your name at the top of the screen. You will see a list of items saved. Clicking on one of the items takes you into its entry on SOLO so that you can check details, availability etc.
You could use the e-Shelf to keep track of books you have used for your assignment
You do not need an account to search SOLO. However, having an account will enable you to check your loans, renew your books and place holds on books which are on loan.
You can also use the e-Shelf to keep lists of books you have read or would like to read.
