Distance students, faculty, and staff may select Mail delivery from the dropdown under pickup location. If selecting mail delivery, we ask that you provide a current mailing address in the Item Description/Notes field.

After your request has been submitted, you will receive either a shipping confirmation or instructions for in-person pickup by email. You can check on the status of your holds any time in the Requested tab in your Library Account.
