You may now place holds on books and pick them up in person via curbside or in-person pickup. All people entering the campus are required to go through COVID-19 screening. We recommend using in-person pickup service for people who are already on campus (for work, school, clinic, etc.); if you are not required to be on campus, please use the curbside pickup service. Students and faculty who cannot travel to campus may request shipping services.
TO REQUEST A PICKUP APPOINTMENT (CURBSIDE OR IN-PERSON PICKUP):
- Place a hold in Primo for a book.
- Once library staff has retrieved your item from the stacks, we will email you to schedule a pickup appointment.
If you choose curbside pickup, you’ll need to set a time to pick up your items so we know when to expect you. When you arrive for your appointment, call Rachel in the Bookstore at 503-253-3443 ext.101 and she will bring your library holds out to you.
If you choose in-person pickup, you’ll select a day to pick up your library materials; you can stop by anytime during the Bookstore’s open hours to retrieve your library holds from the dedicated Library Holds cart.
IMPORTANT: If you are unable to make your pickup day, you will need to contact us before the end of the day to reschedule a pickup. If you are a no-show, your library holds will be returned and you will need to start over and place a new request. If there is a hold queue you will lose your place in line, so please make sure to communicate with us if you cannot make your appointment!
TO REQUEST HOME DELIVERY SERVICE:
Students who have mobility issues or are experiencing other barriers that prevent them from traveling to the college campus to pick up library holds may request home delivery. Home delivery is limited to 2 deliveries per term, up to four items per delivery.
- When placing a hold in Primo, select “Shipping” as the delivery option.
- Library staff will contact you to verify your delivery address before sending out the item. Home delivery only goes out once per week, so please be patient when using this service.
