Requesting material online

If you reserve your documents in advance, they will be waiting for you when you visit the reading room. On Saturdays, you can only consult books that have been reserved beforehand.

How to reserve documents

All reservations are processed via the online catalogue, with your MyKBR account:

  1. Sign in to your account in the online catalogue.
  2. Reserve a seat in the reading room.
  3. Search the document(s) you want to consult.
  4. Open the record and click the ‘Reserve’ button.

If you want to consult a document that is not in the online catalogue, please use the request form.

When will my books be ready?

  • If you reserve your documents at least 2 days before your reading room visit, your books will be ready when you arrive.
  • You can still request books in the reading room, but you will have to wait until they have been retrieved from the stacks.

Follow up your reservations via your MyKBR account: you will be notified when the document is ready.
