Print Requests and Pickup

How to request for pickup
  • Login to your Account
  • Locate the item in Omni, the library search tool, and click "Request for Pickup".
  • If you need to request multiple volumes from a multi-volume set, please submit request and use the "Comment" field to indicate which volumes you want to request.
  • Once you submit your request an email with pickup instructions will follow once staff are able to checkout your items to your account. 
  • Once you receive the on hold shelf notice, your items will be available on our next pickup day.

We’ll do our best to prepare your request in a timely manner. The introduction of enhanced health and safety protocols for staff and users means it may take us longer than usual to prepare your request; thank you for your patience and understanding.

Regular circulating items must be picked up within 5 days from the date your order was processed. 

Please email if you have any questions or call x3402.

Scanning and Digitization Requests

What is Digital Delivery?
  • You can request scans of portions of eligible physical library materials to be delivered in PDF form by email as allowable under existing copyright laws and fair dealing guidelines. This is typically limited to 10% or 1 chapter.
  • Digital delivery offers broad access to physical collections, including book chapters, journal articles, government documents, reference works, and more. 
  • Choosing digital delivery means you can conveniently request and access material at home on any of your devices. It also allows more people to access the same item, bringing library collections to as many users as possible.
  • Certain items are only available through digital delivery. This includes print journals and serials, and reference materials.
