Feb. 11, 2013 – Having material delivered to and from Newman and the Blacksburg branch libraries (Art + Architecture and Veterinary Medicine) and reporting missing material just got easier as new functionality is added to Addison's request button.
If you need books (and more) located in Newman Library to be delivered to one of the branches, or branch library material be delivered to Newman or a participating department office, you no longer need to manually fill in a separate form. Use Addison's request button, login, specify where you want the material delivered, and note which copy you need, and library staff will pull the item for you and send it via the library's Courier Service to its intended location. Branches pull material twice each weekday. The Courier delivers once each weekday.
If you need a book that is not in the stacks where you expect to find it, and a quick check of the reshelving area also doesn't turn it up, you can now use the request button to start the process of searching for that item. We will search for the item multiple times. If it is found, it will be held for you at the circulation desk; if not, it will be marked as missing in the catalog and that makes you eligible to use interlibrary loan to get it from another library. You will be emailed in either circumstance.
These new uses are in addition to the existing functions of the request button:
