Book Delivery

When you place a request via I-Share you can specify whether you would like an item to be held for you at the circulation desk or be mailed directly to you via CPO. You can set a default delivery method or choose your preference with each request. Items may be returned to Buswell Library through CPO.

Items requested via ILLiad are automatically delivered through campus mail. If desired, you may specify pick up at the circulation desk instead by using the “Note” field of the request.
