Delivery of Book Runner requests

How are Book Runner requests delivered?

Your requested items should be delivered to your department within three (3) days of your request (deliveries are made each weekday the university is open).   Branch libraries pull items twice a day weekdays and not on weekends.

Note that we will check these items out to you prior to our deliveries. If we are unable to deliver your items, we will try again on the next delivery. If we are unsuccessful again, we will place the items on the hold shelf at the Newman Circulation Desk and notify you via email.

We will only deliver items you request to the location associated with your department as indicated by the paperwork that was submitted to us by your department head.

If you are not part of a department that has opted-in to this service, your requested items will be put on the hold shelf at the Newman Circulation Desk. You will be notified by email once they are ready to pick up. If your office is located in either Cowgill Hall, or the Phase III building of the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine, we will deliver your books to the branch library in your building. You will be able to pick them up as you would any hold book at that point.
