How do I place a request through LINK+?

You can search the LINK+ catalog by clicking here: https://linkencore.iii.com/iii/encore/search/C__S__Orightresult__U?lang=eng&suite=def

Once you find a title you would like to borrow, click on “Request This Item,” select “Contra Costa County Library” from the drop-down menu and click “Submit.” Enter your name, Library card number, select the pickup location from the drop down menu and click “Submit.’ If your item is available, you will see the message “Your request for {item requested} was successful.”

You are allowed ten LINK+ items on request at one time.

You cannot request items that are available from Contra Costa County Library.

If no copies are available on the shelf at the lending Library, you cannot successfully request the item. LINK+ does not allow for hold queues on items.
