The inventory allows reservations for one week only. However, if you really need the tools for two weeks (or three weeks in case of organisations), let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Follow these four simple steps to make a reservation:
In the inventory overview, you have two options. You can click immediately on the reserve button (1), or click on the item for more details, including a loan calendar and reservation button (2).
You then get to choose your preferred reservation period. Click on one of the days we are open (the font colour is slightly darker than days we are closed), then select a return date.
You will now have the item in your reservation cart as seen in the top right your screen (1). Feel free to add other items to your cart by clicking the reserve button (2).
Now your items are in the cart, all you need to do is to confirm the reservation. It's called 'Check Out'. After that you're good to go.
You can only start and end a reservation on dates that our lending desk is open, as these are the only occasions you can drop by to collect tools. For an overview of these opening times, check our website.
Here's an example of a buffer period (in gray) 2 days before and after a loan, as indicated in the tool calendar of a specific item:
At the time of writing, openings hours are on Monday and Friday. This means the tool returns on August 20, and the next reservation can only happen on August 24 as is the case here.
Check the reservations page in your account menu. This page displays everything you have reserved at the moment.
Check the loans page in your account menu. This page gives an overview of all your current and past loans. You can also extend loans here for an extra week.
