Print library books may be scheduled through a pick up appointment. On campus students please use the catalog, then call the library to schedule a book pick up appointment at x2431 or x2448, or you can also use the calendar app.  Off campus students can still use the calendar app, for that click here.  Be sure to state the book you desire in the scheduling form.
