Item Delivery to the Centers from Lawrence W. Tyree Library on Vimeo.

Hello! This video tutorial will demonstrate how to have items from the Lawrence W. Tyree Library on the Northwest Campus sent to you at your Center for pickup and return.

The Tyree Library on the Northwest Campus has many physical resources, including books and videos. However, you do not need to physically travel to the Northwest Campus to use these items. Instead, you may request delivery of items to your Center.

Use the library catalog to find items in the library collection. To access the library catalog, click the Catalog link on the library website or use the quick search box.

Type a title, author, or topic in the search box. Use as few words as possible in order to receive the best search results. For more instructions on searching the library catalog, view our library catalog tutorial.

The library collection includes a variety of formats, including physical books, eBooks, videos, and streaming videos. Each result includes a header that indicates its format.

Items with an Available Online link can be read or watched online from any location. Click the link for access information.

Books and videos with a collection and call number are physical items on the shelves at the Northwest Campus Tyree Library. You may request items in most collections, including the Circulating, Youth, New Books, Media, Audiobooks, and CD collections. Click the title to learn more about the item and to begin the process of requesting it.

You may want to double check that the item is available on the shelf before requesting it. If an item is already checked out, you will have a longer wait before it is delivered.

Click the Sign in link to request the item.

On the next screen, choose the Office 365 option.

Sign in, if prompted, using your Office 365 account. You might not see this screen if you are logged in elsewhere to Canvas or your Office 365 email.

Once you are signed in, you will now see the option to Place a hold.

Choose your Center under Pickup Location and then Send Request. You do not need to include the pickup date or add a comment; these are optional.

Your item should be available at your Center within three business days. You can pick it up at your Center’s reception desk. If you are on Blount Campus, pick it up in Blount Hall, room 213. When you are finished with the item, return it to the same location.

If you need the item for longer than the due date, you can renew it. In the library catalog, click your name and then My Loans.

On this screen, you can see what items you have checked out and when they are due. You will also be able to renew the items here.

Items in the Reference, Ready Reference, and Reserves collections do not leave the Tyree Library and do not have an option to place a hold. Instead, look for the Request a scan option, which appears when you are logged in.

Include as much information as possible about what part of the book you would like scanned and sent to you, such as a chapter number, a page range, or a topic. Because of copyright limitations, only a small section of a book can be scanned.

This concludes the video tutorial on item delivery to the Centers. If you have any questions, please contact a librarian:
