Lending Requests

Create, manage and respond to lending requests.

Your requests appear in the left navigation menu and under Quick Links on the Home screen.  The major queues are listed first, followed by minor queues for easier organization.  Click a queue to see all requests in that queue. See the Categories and Queues table for a detailed description of each queue.

Note: Queues with no current requests will not appear in the list.
