Yes, you can still get books! Only now *we* have new ways to get those books to you!
From the library homepage, search the item. Click the "Place Hold" button, the button maybe blue like on the left or orange on the right.
If you are not already logged into PirateNet it will ask you to login. Done!
If it doesn't come up when you search try ILL or EZBorrow (returning August 24th).
When your items are available for pick-up you will receive an email asking how you would like to get them:
We can scan it or request it!
Place your request through ILL and we will either scan it if we have it onsite or request a copy from another school. Please note that scans will take longer than 24 hours, as it is dependent on staffing levels and on lending library availability.
To place a request through ILLiad:
We love how much you all love these services! And we want to make sure they are safely available for the SHU Community.
EZBorrow is available for borrowing. Not all EZB Libraries are up yet so the availability will be different than before.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) was still operating over the summer, fulfilling electronic article and book chapter requests. We have resumed physical borrowing and lending.
Please note: Turn around is going to take longer for these items. COVID-19 has been found to exist on books for up to 96 hours, for everyone's safety we are quarantining books from other libraries for 4 days before notifying patrons they are ready for pick-up.
All items that were due back between February 23 - September 1, 2020 have been automatically renewed and are now due back by September 2, 2020. All fines for items due during this same period have been waived. All items are subject to an earlier recall, and the individuals will be contacted directly if this is the case. For all questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
