This guide discusses finding and requesting books from the physical collection at the Kreitzberg Library.
The results open in our library catalog. The default is set to show only those results that are available through the Norwich library.
You can see the book's record after clicking on the title from the results list.
The next screen says Submit a Place Hold Request.
Once you submit a request for a book, what is the turnaround time to receive it?
Once you submit your request, we will usually have the book mailed out to you within two business days. Then, depending on where you live, it could take up to a week for you to receive it.
Please note: It will take much longer to get to you if you are overseas. If you are on a military post, we are unable to track the package once it reaches the base.
How long do you have to use the book?
CGCS students have a checkout time of 90 days. You can renew the book by contacting the library or logging into your library account.
Books must be returned by mail. You are responsible for paying the return postage on all books borrowed from the library, and also for any costs incurred from books being lost in the mail.
We highly encourage students to insure any packages being sent back to the library in case the books are lost. UPS automatically protects every shipment against loss or damage up to a value of $100.00, FedEx Ground and Express liability is also $100. Depending on the type of mail chosen, USPS insurance comes at an additional cost.
Our library cannot borrow books from other libraries for online students and faculty since loan periods do not allow sufficient time for shipping to your location.
