During COVID, faculty members may request physical books through our Expedited Book Delivery service. When students are allowed back on campus, we plan to implement a new Payson Patio Pickup service.
For safety reasons, it is not possible to obtain print materials from other institutions at this time. Patrons are still encouraged to make interlibrary loan requests, and we will do our best to locate an electronic version.
When it is safe to return to campus, you may place your returns in the book drop by the second floor entrance or in the book drop at the circulation desk on the first floor. At any of the graduate campus libraries, please proceed to the circulation desk to return your materials. During COVID-19, books will be quarantined for several days before they are reshelved.
