In order to request a book from the library's collection, use the "Request" button feature within the catalog to request that a book be mailed to your office. Once you click this button and login to your library account, you will be able to easily request the book to be retrieved. Some guidelines for the book retrieval service are:
If an item is Available or Checked Out, we will either pull the book from the shelves or recall it from another user.
Only items form general circulation and compact shelving collections are offered in this service.
Requests submitted on Friday, Saturday or Sunday will be processed the following Monday morning.
To place a request, do the following:
Go to the catalog: http://library.uncc.edu/catalog/
Search the catalog, and Click the Request button towards the top of the screen when you find an item you want.
After clicking the "Request" button, you will login to your library account
After logging in, select the item you want to request, and click on the "REQUEST SELECTED ITEM" button
5. The item will be checked out and delivered to your campus office.
6. No email notices are sent for available items being delivered to offices.
7. It will take longer if the item is checked to another borrower and has to be 'recalled'.
