Contactless Book Pickup

What you need to know

Before submitting your request:

Check that the item you are requesting is not available in digital format.

If you require a chapter from a book, please consider making a request using the Article/Chapter Scan & Deliver service to have the chapter scanned and emailed to you as a PDF.

Only regularly circulating items may be requested. Items that are part of course reserves and Special Collections are not available for the Contactless Book Pickup service. To request items that are part of the reference collection, please email

Each request may require up to one week to process before the requestor is notified that the items are available. Intercampus delivery may take more time.

Documents are loaned for 30 days. Renewals are automatic as long as an item is not requested by another user. Loaned material is not eligible for recall by users; however, the Library reserves the right to recall items to support course readings, digitization, or critical research needs.

Requested items will be wrapped with a sheet of paper printed with your last name and first initial and placed on a shelf. Items will already be checked out to your library account. To cancel a request, please email
