Contactless Book Pickup!

During recent months, the campus has been working to make adjustments so that students, staff, and faculty can maintain social distancing. In an effort to provide you physical books during these times, we now have contactless book pickup via our library lockers!

Similar to Amazon package lockers, they can be used to pick-up library books & materials requested via OneSearch.  The lockers are located at the south entrance of the library (Quad side). This allows users to pick-up their books/materials any time. In OneSearch, for a book or item, users select Request and then 24/7 Lockers ; an email will then be sent with instructions how to open the locker (an electronic key code).  Materials will be available from the locker for 3 days after the email is sent.  Please see full details about lockers for more information.
