How do I place a request on an item and where do I pick it up?



Once you are signed into your Library Account, you can locate items through the library search system and request them for pick-up. All items with a regular loan policy can be requested. Items that are currently signed out to another user can still be requested, and the borrower of the item will receive a recall notification.


To learn more about placing requests refer to the steps below:


1. Sign into your Library Account.

2. Click on "New Search" and search for the item you wish to borrow.

3. Click on the item.

4. "Request" the item.

  • For books, the Request link will be under "Get It."
  • For journal issues, you can request individual issues under the "Options" column on the right-hand side of the page.

5. Select the pick-up location for your item(s).

6. Click "Request."


You will receive an email notification once your item is available for pick-up. You will have 7 days to pick-up your item(s). Your item will be located on the Hold/Request shelves, filed alphabetically by last name.
