Library Item Delivery Service

Current UM-Dearborn faculty and staff may request UM-Dearborn owned library items online, and may request that the items be delivered through campus mail. Items may also be held at the Library Info Desk, to be picked up in person or by a designated proxy.

This free service is not a rush service. Requests are processed within 48 hours, during library open hours. Please allow 1-2 additional days for delivery.

The following items are eligible for delivery:

  • Circulating books
  • Circulating audiovisual materials
  • Items on reserve for your class

The following items are not eligible for delivery:

  • Currently checked out items (place a hold or request a recall instead)
  • Items from other libraries (including UM-Ann Arbor, UM-Flint, ILL, and MeLCat items)
  • Items on reserve for another faculty member
  • Reference items
  • Periodicals
  • Microfilm & Microfiche
  • Items that are marked "in library use only"

Request Item Delivery

To request item delivery, please submit the Delivery Service Request Form. You will need the title of the item, as well as the item's call number (this can be found in the library catalog).

Please note:

  • You may request up to three items per form
  • Requests are limited to three items per day, and six items per week
  • The library does not accept telephone requests

Returning Delivered Items

Items may be returned inside the library (at the Library Info Desk) or by using the outdoor drop box located between the Library and IAVS. We do not recommend returning materials via campus mail, as delays may cause items to become overdue
