We have changed the process to make requesting and receiving Lending Library Textbooks for the Spring 2021 semester safe and easy.
To request a Lending Library Textbook, students must make a request through the Library catalog, OneSearch. Each step of the process is outlined below. Please note, if you are unable to pick up your textbook on Friday, January 8, you must contact the library at firstname.lastname@example.org to make alternate arrangements.
Use the Bookstore's Textbook Finder to determine what textbook is required for your course. Take note of as much information as possible including the textbook title, author(s), year of publication, edition, and ISBN. You may also be able to check or verify your course textbook by contacting the course instructor, or by checking the course syllabus if the course Canvas page is available.
Use OneSearch to search for your textbook in the Lending Library. Be sure to verify that the library's textbook matches what is required using the title, author(s), year of publication, edition, or ISBN.
Once you have located your textbook in OneSearch, make your request! You can either request Home Delivery (instructions in the first video below) or On-Campus Locker Pick-Up (instructions in the second video below).
You may pick up your Lending Library Textbook in-person at our on-campus lockers. Once your request has been processed and is available for pick-up, you will receive an email with further instructions. A Daily Health Check is required before entering campus.
You may request home delivery of your Lending Library Textbook. Requests submitted on or before Tuesdays at 12:00 pm will be processed and shipped before the end of the business week. Please allow at least 2 weeks for delivery.
If you have any questions about the process, need help with any of the steps, or would like to make alternate arrangements for textbook pick-up, please contact us!
