Borrowing, Picking Up, and Returning Library Materials

Need a book? Request library items online at using the search box OneSearch

Search OneSearch. If it is not available online, use the “Request Access” button.  If we can get the book we'll either provide digital access to it or, mail the physical copy to your preferred address. Note that delivery of physical items to your address may take at least two weeks, so we’ll provide digital access if possible. All materials currently being lent out via Mail to Home are handled only by staff wearing gloves and masks.

All items being shipped to users via Mail To Home will come with detailed instructions for how to return items to campus.

Students, faculty, and staff can now request to pick up library materials at a contactless Library Locker located outside the Craven Circle (2nd floor) University Library entrance. Please note: you must receive an email from the library prior to pickup.
