Faculty Office Delivery

What is faculty office delivery?

This service allows faculty members to request library materials for delivery to their department mail room or administrative office, Monday through Friday, during regular office hours. Requests may be placed through the catalog and turnaround time is 48 hours. Most materials that circulate for three days or longer from the Ithaca and Geneva libraries may be requested, including books, serials, DVDs, videos, audio recordings and computer disks. There is no charge for this service.

How does it work?

Requests are placed through the library catalog (see instructions below). The library designated as your service provider (usually the one closest to your building) will check out the item to you and deliver it to your department's mail room or administrative office within 48 hours, Monday through Friday, during standard office hours. The Library will notify you when the item has been delivered to your department.

To return items, please bring them back to any library, as you do with other library materials.  There is no retrieval service.
