Tip: To initiate a request for physical items, click the red request link, review your request and click the orange request button to finalize your request. Items typically are available within 15 minutes during open library hours.  Long runs of microfilm may take longer than 15 minutes to be pulled.  

The Request button appears after you're logged in

You will then be taken to this screen. You can be as detailed as you wish, but the only required field is the Pickup Location.  

Hit the Request button and that's it! Your item will be waiting for you at the Reserve desk on Level 2 within 15 minutes.
