Requesting

Eligible users may request that library items to be pulled and held for them at five libraries:

  • Mullins Library
  • Chemistry and Biochemistry Library
  • Fine Arts Library
  • Performing Arts and Media
  • Physics Library

Most Young Law Library materials may be requested only if they are checked out to another patron; these requests will be held at the Law Library for pickup.

Materials at Crystal Bridges Museum Library do not circulate and must be consulted at the museum.

You will receive an email notice when the items are available for pick up. Requests will be processed twice each weekday between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Requests will not be processed on the days the owning libraries are closed.

Items will be held for 5 days from the day an e-mail pickup notification is generated. Items not picked up after 5 days will be returned to the shelf. Items currently checked out to another patron may be requested and will be placed on hold as soon as they are returned.
