Library In-Person Hours by Campus

Beginning 9-27-21, campus libraries will be open for in-person service during the days and hours listed below. 

Students have the following two options for accessing library physical materials:

  1. If you wish to pick-up or drop off library materials using the library curbside delivery service, please contact to make an appointment to use this service. Appointments must be requested a minimum of one business day in advance of requested service time. Students utilizing curbside delivery are not permitted to have access to campus building facilities and must immediately leave the campus property after picking up or dropping off materials.
  2. Students who have completed the EVERFI training (Staying Safe Together) and also provided proof of full vaccination/recent negative viral testing via the University’s COVID-19 portal may access the Library on days that they are scheduled for on-campus presence for their classes once they have completed their health screening attestation and checked in at a check-in kiosk.

Coming Soon:

Students who have completed the EVERFI training and also provided proof of full vaccination/recent negative viral testing who wish to access the Library on a day they are not scheduled for on-campus presence for classes will be able to request a day pass for campus presence via a request form on the Student Portal. This process is not operational at this time and is expected to be functional in late October. Additional information will be sent to students when this process is available for use.

Curbside Service Process

  1. Determine what you want
    1. Look up books, tests, and other items in the library catalog by using the search box on the library home page, If you need help finding what you want, just contact the library and we will assist you.
    2. Alliant books and Link+ books can be requested using the “Request It” feature in the library catalog. Interlibrary Loan and ArticleReach requests can also be made online. To request a test kit or test forms, call or email your campus library (email addresses and phone numbers are listed below, under each campus).
  2. Once you know which item or items you want, locate the campus below that you will be picking up from. Use the information listed below to send a request at least one business day (24 hours) in advance of when you would like to pick up the item(s). NOTE: placing the request does not guarantee the items will be available in one day. In some cases, the campus you are picking up from may need to obtain the materials from a different campus, which can take several days.
  3. For requests placed through the catalog, you'll be notified when the item is ready for pick up. For requests made via email or voicemail, the library will reply within one business day. If you have questions about the status of your catalog-placed requests, contact us. In the library response we will let you know what items will be ready and the earliest date you can pick them up.

If you are returning materials, APPOINTMENTS ARE REQUIRED. ITEMS MAY NOT BE RETURNED OUTSIDE OF THE SERVICE WINDOWS. Face coverings must be worn at all times when returning materials.

If you are picking up materials, you must respond to the message from the library letting you know they are ready, and specify the day and time you will be picking the material up. APPOINTMENTS ARE REQUIRED. ITEMS MAY NOT BE PICKED UP OUTSIDE OF THE SERVICE WINDOWS. Face coverings must be worn at all times when picking up materials.
