Book Runner Delivery Service for Faculty & Staff

How do I get items delivered on campus?

Our delivery service, Book Runner, now delivers library materials through campus mail. Faculty and staff with a campus address and/or department code may have books and other items sent through campus mail.

To Request Items:

  • Find what you'd like in Addison
  • Select an item by clicking on the green Request icon
  • In the "Pickup Location" drop-down menu, choose "Faculty Campus Delivery"
  • Select your location. Note: You may also use any of the on-campus libraries as a pick-up location.

Requestable Items:

  • Books, serials, scripts, juvenile books, and any book that is in the University Libraries’ regular collection.
  • We will also deliver media materials needed for class use. Simply use our online booking form. Please request media materials as far in advance as possible, so we can ensure that they are available when the time comes that you need them.

Non-Requestable Items:

  • Books on display, DVDs, CDs, reserve materials, and unbound journals and magazines are not eligible for this service; you will still need to retrieve these items in person.
  • If you need an article from a bound journal, you should use the Desktop Delivery service.

How delivery works:

  • Items will be checked out to your account just before we mail them. You’ll receive a receipt via email.
  • If you happen to select non-requestable items, they will be placed on the hold shelf at the Newman Library Circulation Desk for you to pick up. You’ll receive an email about that, as well.
  • Requested items should arrive within 3 to 5 business days. Campus mail service does not operate on weekends or when the university is closed.
  • If your items do not arrive within a week, contact Newman Library Circulation at crculate@vt.edu.
