Contactless Book Pickup
University of Calgary students, faculty and staff are now able to request books from our physical library collections (TFDL, HDL and branch libraries) for pickup at the TFDL. Requested items will be picked for contactless pickup at the TFDL Monday to Thursday 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, Friday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Sunday 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
- Place requests on the physical items you want. You can have up to 10 requests on your account at any one time.
- You will receive an email notification when your items are ready for pickup. Do not come to the Library until you have received a notification. You have seven (7) days to pickup up your materials.
- All items are subject to recall. If someone else requests an item you have, you will be asked to return it. Overdue fines will accrue beginning August 31 if recalled materials are not returned.
- Please return all materials to the Book Return bin at the East Exit of the TFDL.
This service is available for current University of Calgary students, faculty and staff only. We will continue to deliver online digital content to you. We will not be requesting or delivering physical items or scanned copies for you.
Returning Library Materials
- You may return library materials to the exterior book drop of the Taylor Family Digital Library. The book drop is located on the east side of the building (across from the MacKimmie Complex). Walking access is available from the bus loop on the south side of Craigie Hall.
- Materials are quarantined for 72 hours before being processed.
- If you are unable to return items, please hang on to them until we return to normal operations and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org outlining your challenge.
- Overdue fines on recalled materials will begin accruing beginning August 31, 2020.
