How do I check out a book?

If you've visited the library in its temporary location in Ackerman this year, you may be wondering where the books are and how you can check them out.

During renovation of Pierce Library, most of the collection is being stored in another building. When you make a request from the catalog, your book will be retrieved by Library staff. An email alert will be sent to you as soon as it is available for check-out at the Circulation desk. You can often pick the book up the same day you request it, or by the next day if you request late in the day.

Other pickup and delivery options for those living off campus and either inside or outside of Union County can by found in Library Tutorials (also available beneath Research Help on the Library home page).
