UNC Charlotte Students can now use the "Request" button feature within the catalog to request that a book be held for you at the Circulation desk. Once you click this button and login to your library account, you will be able to easily request the book to be retrieved. Once the book has been requested online, library staff will retrieve the book and the student may pick it up at the circulation desk located by the main entrance of the library. Online requests are retrieved regularly, at 11AM, 1PM and 2AM, during the spring and fall semesters. The service is available during the summer sessions as well, but limited to one daily retrieval. Some guidelines for the book retrieval service are:
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
You will be notified through your UNCC email account when the item is ready for pickup at the Circulation Desk if the item was checked out.
You will not be notified through email if the item status is "Available" in the catalog at the time of the request. These items are automatically held at the Circulation Desk for 7 days for pick up.
