To request items from Newman or the Blacksburg branch libraries, look for the green request button next to the records while browsing Addison, the library catalog. After clicking on the request button, you will need to login to your library account if you haven’t already. Once you login, you will be presented with a choice of pickup location (including participating department offices via our Book Runner service). Keep in mind that if you choose a location other than Newman Library, you will have to wait up to one day longer to get your requested item.
After selecting your pickup location, click the submit button at the bottom of the page. This will take you to another page where you must confirm that the item you’ve selected is what you really want. Click the “REQUEST SELECTED ITEM” to finalize your request.
Items that can be requested are as follows: CDs, storage journals, scripts, juvenile books, VHS tapes, 16mm films, and books in Newman Library.
DVDs and bound journals are not eligible for this new service; you will still need to retrieve these items on your own.
Mon-Thur: 10am, 3pm, 11pm
