Tips for picking up/dropping off

If you need to get items from the library on campus, you might find getting print books, DVDs, and other items can be a REAL DRAG!

Steps that make it easier:

  1. Find the item you want to check out in the catalog.
    • If your item isn't at the library, order it through ILL.
  2. Place a HOLD on the item.
  3. Important! Wait until you recieve an email notification that your item is ready for pick-up from Document Delivery/ILL (before you make the treck all the way over to find out it isn't ready yet!).
  4. For your convenience, 15 minute pick-up/drop-off parking next to the library is now available! (see map below) 
    • Just FYI! You will recieve a citation :'( from Transportation and Parking Services if you are parked too long!  
  5. Service Desks are conveniently located near both enterences of the building. Politely ask our nice desk clerks for your item.
    • Remember, bring your eRaider Card to check out!
  6. Returning your item has never been easier!  All items can be placed in the east Book Drop bin.  Be sure to have a nice day!

Oops, I did it again! Remember, you don't want a citation, please be aware of parking rules.  If you think you need the library longer than 15 minutes use the paid parking or your parking permit between 5:30 - 8:00 pm on weekdays or free after 8:00 pm and on weekends.
