Pick Up Service
Pick Up Service: The library has instituted a process to allow faculty, staff, students, and community borrowers to check out books, DVDs, CDs, and audio-books during the COVID-19 pandemic. Patrons will request materials through the online catalog and pick up materials at the Public Services Desk.
Library staff will retrieve items, then the items will be placed on the hold shelf and labeled with the patron’s name.
This service is subject to change as procedures and policies evolve in response to external developments.
How Do I Place a Hold?

- Locate the desired item in Shepherd’s Worldcat Discovery online catalog.
- Click the ‘Place Hold’ button on the item’s catalog record and submit the form.
