Address Guidelines

Our mailing address is:

UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS LIBRARIES
365 N. MCILROY AVE
FAYETTEVILLE AR 72701-4002

U.S. Mail Address

The official mail and deliveries address and zip code for the Libraries (excluding the Law Library) is distinct from all other university addresses. All other University mail—including that for the Law Library—will continue to be addressed to the 72701-1201 zip code and will be delivered to and distributed by Mailing Services.

Format

The last three lines of the library address consist of standard business mail data elements required by the U.S.P.S. and are essential to facilitate prompt sorting and delivery of library mail by the U.S.P.S. In addition, the street address (which is the physical location of the Mullins Library loading dock) will facilitate delivery by trucking companies and other vendors.

Addresses may be up to six lines long. The bottom three lines should be used exactly as indicated below:

line 4    UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS LIBRARIES
line 5    365 N. MCILROY AVE
line 6    FAYETTEVILLE AR 72701-4002

Line 4 is preferred in full without abbreviation.

Each of the top three lines is optional. Acceptable variations for mail to individuals are: line 1 or 2 only; lines 1 and 2; and lines 1 and 3.

line 1    NAME OF ADDRESSEE
line 2    WORKING TITLE OF ADDRESSEE
line 3    NAME OF LIBRARY DEPARTMENT
line 4    UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS LIBRARIES
line 5    365 N. MCILROY AVE
line 6    FAYETTEVILLE AR 72701-4002

Departmental mail would contain line 3 only.

line 3    NAME OF LIBRARY DEPARTMENT
line 4    UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS LIBRARIES
line 5    365 N. MCILROY AVE
line 6    FAYETTEVILLE AR 72701-4002

The order of the lines should be maintained, deleting or adding lines as appropriate.

Business Addresses

In the body of an out-going letter, library personnel may use a traditional mixture of upper and lower case letters and appropriate punctuation for our Libraries’ address. However, when creating a destination address on an envelope or mailing label or within a letter that will be inserted into a window envelope, the business address standards of the U.S.P.S. should be used. These include the use of all capital letters and the omitting of all punctuation EXCEPT for the hyphen between the first five and last four digits of the zip code.
