Storage Materials

Many Library materials are located in Storage. Current students, faculty, and staff may request storage items through Library OneSearch using the "Request It" link.  Materials are retrieved by library staff once per day, Monday through Friday. Please pick up your item(s) at the Circulation Desk.

Requesting Storage Items Through Library OneSearch:

1. Search for an item in Library OneSearch.

2. Browse the list of retrieved items. Titles with the Location "Off-Site Storage," "Periodicals Storage," or something similar will have a "Request It" link. (Please keep in mind that items that do not circulate, such as Reference books, will not allow you to request them.)

Click the "Request It" link from the browse screen.
