Borrow Books by Mail

Books can be borrowed from the library through our "Place a Hold" form. The requested book will be mailed to you.
  1. When you find a book you’d like to request first click “Retrieve Catalog Item” link found just under the subjects listed for the item, see below:

  3. If you are not already logged in to the library catalog you will need to do so in order to place your hold, use your 7 digit college ID number for both entries:
