Requesting library items for pickup at a service desk or for faculty delivery.

Books can be requested through Discover for pickup at various library services desks throughout campus or for faculty delivery. After selecting a book through Discover, simply click on the “Request for pickup” link to submit a hold request. Login and select the pickup location. Some materials will have restrictions on where the items can be picked up. You will be able to place up to 10 holds at a time, and you will be able to manage your hold requests through your library account.

Requests are processed within 48 hours if the items are available. You will be notified by email when the items are available for pick up and the items will be held at the requested service desk for 7 days from the time of notification. Items requested for pickup at the Media Library Service Desk are available for 3 days from the time of notification.

Items that are checked out or not available may be requested through Interlibrary loan. Some students may be eligible for Distance Learning Services.
