I requested some books to be sent to me. How can I know where they are in process.

Go to your My Account. There should be a record of your request materials there.

You will also receive an email notification when your items are ready for pick up.

When you have the items Mailed to you, or have items sent from Branch to Branch, it can take between 5-10 business days for items to arrive.

There will be a return label in the box. We ask that you hold on to the package and use that to return the items.‚Äč

Can I have my Class Textbooks sent via Mail Delivery from the library?

Unfortunately, due to the high turnover rate of textbooks that are in the library collection, many of these items are not available for mail delivery. Often these items are placed on reserve, or they are available for pick up only.

We do offer scanning of chapters up to 20% of the material. Textbooks can be purchased from the Bookstore or other online retail stores. You may also want to try Internet Archive or Your local public library.
