Delivering books between Libraries:

Yes, you may. To request the delivery of item(s) from one library to another, you must first use Quick Search or the Classic Catalog and find the record for the desired item.

  • In Quick Search, click on 'Check Holdings' link. This will connect you to the record page in the Classic Catalog. Then, follow the directions below.
  • In the Classic Catalog, click on the 'Request' button at the top or bottom of the screen. On the next screen, fill in your WUSTL Key ID (username) and password (courtesy borrowers put in name, borrower ID, and PIN). After you've chosen a library pickup location, click on the Submit button.

The item will be delivered from the library that has that item to the library you wish to pick it up from, in usually about one day. Go to the circulation desk of that library to pick it up.
