You may place requests for materials at any time and they will be paged every two hours during our hours of operation. We will notify you via email when your holds are ready. Please note that holds placed for items at the McKinley Chemistry Library and Thurlow Lieurance Music Library will take longer to retrieve.

To pick up your holds, please stop at the Circulation Desk in Ablah Library. Your materials will be held in a locker adjacent to the desk. Upon showing your Shocker ID card, Libraries staff will  provide you the information needed to retrieve your materials. The process in place is designed to provide contactless checkout of your materials.

Note: If you are working or attending courses remotely and need to have materials mailed to you, contact Interlibrary Loan. We will mail books to you as needed. You are responsible for returning the items via mail.
