Borrowing Requests

After creating requests, they appear in the left navigation under Borrowing Requests and under Quick Links on 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.
