Fall 2020 Library Services: Items You Can Pick Up in Person

Overview

Use UP Library Search to request items from the Clark Library and Summit collections, and then pick them up at the main floor Service Desk during our open hours. You will receive an email when items are ready. Swipe into the building with your UP ID.

You can send someone to pick up your books, as long as they have your UP ID card in hand. Remind them that they will need the card to get into the building.

Visit the Loan Periods page to see how long you can have items for.


Not finding the item you want? Order it through our Interlibrary Loan / UP ILLiad service, and we will do our best to obtain it from another library and also consider it for an online purchase. Or, use the Submit a Request form to suggest a purchase.


All returned items will be quarantined for one week before being checked out again. Please do not clean them yourself.
