Print Resources:
The print collection is NOT open for in-person browsing at this time. 

Visit the library catalog. Submit a resource delivery request for items to be delivered to an on-campus mailbox or mailed to a preferred off-campus address. 

Walk-up requests will also be accommodated but are not encouraged.  

Preferred method for Main Campus Library items is to return materials through the campus mail system to CU Box #5590

Items may also be put into the Circulation Desk book return at either library location. 

All tangible items that are returned will need to be quarantined for 7 days before being recirculated. 

Interlibrary Loan items will be mailed to the address specified in your Interlibrary Loan account. 

Due to the necessity of quarantining physical library materials after use, the University Libraries are unable to offer physical material course reserves until further notice. The short-term circulation of reserve materials does not allow for the necessary quarantine.  
(Please note that textbooks are not available through Interlibrary Loan nor are they routinely purchased for classes)

All Library equipment will be available for check out. Request items at the Circulation Desk.

* Users are responsible for sanitizing items before they are returned.

Electronic files of archives items can be created and emailed upon request. 

Use of the Archives is by appointment only.
