How To: Request a Book for Pickup
Due to COVID-19, the Libraries have made many changes to our operations this semester. The Hunt Library stacks are closed, reservations are required for seating, and CMU affiliates will need to place a hold on materials through an online reservation system.
To request materials from Hunt, Sorrells, and Mellon Libraries or our offsite locations, follow these steps:
- Search for the books they want through the library catalog.
- Once you locate your materials, you will be prompted to log in with your Andrew ID and password, and then you can select either “request” or “request scanning.”
- Once your holds are pulled by Libraries staff, you will get an email to make a reservation to select a date to pick up your materials up.
- Holds are available for pick-up at the circulation counter of Hunt library by the next business day, and staff will hold them for a week.
