To have a book delivered to your Center, you must first use the library catalog to determine the title, authors, and call number. If you need help using the library catalog, please view the Books page of this guide.
The Lawrence W. Tyree Library on the Northwest Campus will send books to the reception desk at all of the SF Centers. It usually takes about two business days for the title to arrive.
To have a book sent to your Center, follow these steps:
Click the Place a Hold link.
Log in to your library account. Your Borrower ID is your 8 digit SF ID number; your PIN/Password is the last four digits of the same number. If you need help logging in, please call the Reference Desk at 352-395-5409.
Choose your Center in the Pickup Location drop down box.
Books will be delivered to your Center's reception desk within 2 business days. You may also return the book to the reception desk.
This video tutorial will demonstrate how to have a book from the Lawrence W. Tyree Library sent to you at your Center for pickup and return.
The Tyree Library has many physical resources at the Northwest Campus. Book delivery is a convenient way to make the most use of library resources without having to travel to Gainesville to access them.
Use the library catalog to find books and videos on your topic. To access the library catalog, click the Catalog link under the photo of the Library. You can also use the quick search box on the front page.
Type your topic in the search box. Use as few words as possible in order to receive the best search results. If you need more help with searching the library catalog, you can view our library catalog tutorial.
Search results will be a mixture of physical books, eBooks, videos, and streaming videos. Look at the icons to determine what format each title is in.
Books in the Circulating, Youth, and New Books Collections, as well as Media, Audiobooks, and CDs, can be requested. Look for a Place a Hold link in the right of the gray bar.
When you click Place a Hold, you will need to log into your library account. Your Borrower ID is your 8-digit Santa Fe ID number without the hyphen. Your PIN is the last 4 digits of your 8-digit SF ID number.
From the drop-down box, select the Center where you want the item delivered and click Place Request.
Items should be available at your Center within 3 business days. You can pick it up at your Center's reception desk. The item will be checked out to you for two weeks.
Need the item for another two weeks? Before the due date, click the loans/renewals button at the top of the catalog when you are signed in and renew the item. When you are finished with the item, return it to your Center's reception desk.
If you need information from a book or item that is NonCirculating, please call the Reference Desk at 352-395-5409. A librarian will be able to assist you.
This concludes the video tutorial on book delivery to the Centers. If you still have questions, please contact a librarian.
