Request items not found in a search

Learn how to request an item not found in a UnityUK search using a blank request form (and then either add rota locations manually or allow UnityUK to automatically build a rota).

There will be occasions when the item you need to request cannot be found via a UnityUK search. UnityUK allows you to enter the request details yourself.

Select the Create Request option from the links at the top of the page if you are in the Bib Search domain.
