How long will it take for my books/dvds/cds to be ready?

Plan on several days from the point of request to pick up. If your item is already at the campus where you will pick it up, we just need to pull it from the shelf, and send you the instructions to schedule your pick up. If you're requesting an item from one of the other campuses, please be patient. Delivery of items between campuses is still limited to once per week and so it may take several extra days for us to get back to you. If you're requesting an item that is already checked out and/or that has other holds placed before yours, there will also be a wait as requests are first come, first served.

Library Materials Pick up Instructions

August 2nd - August 6th when you receive an email letting you know that your item is ready for pick up you can go to the campus during curbside hours to retrieve the item. Pick up hours are listed below.
