Getting Books from the Library
We will happily get books for you and hold them until you arrive. Staying out of the stacks helps us keep the library clean and open for other users.
To request a book place a hold request on it in Knox Primo. Hold requests are sent to library staff who will retrieve the item(s) from the shelves (if available) in Seymour Library. Items will be placed on the Hold Shelf in Seymour Library until they can be picked up.
To place a hold request on an item in Knox Primo:
1. Go to Knox Primo and sign in
2. Search for the item, then click on the title to display the full record
3. In the menu on the left, click on "Get It"
4. Click on the "Request it For Pickup" link:
5. The small request form opens. Add a comment if you wish. Click SEND REQUEST to place the hold request.
6. You will receive an email notification when the item is ready to be picked up.

Online Tools and Digital Materials
For the most part, we will not have physical reserves available. We have made our best effort to purchase e-versions of required texts (if they are available) and those will be listed in the reserves list for your class. In the case of physical reserves, you would pick them up at the circulation desk. If your professor says something is on reserve, please be sure to ask if it is a physical item before heading to the library. If you need a book that is not available, please check with a librarian for help.
