About Requesting

Update 9/24/2020: Due to current safety-related modifications, our Requesting options have changed. 

Requesting Scans of Course-Required Material 

The library is not offering print or media Course Reserves in Fall 2020 because our quarantine period for returned material warrants the service ineffective. However, faculty and GEs can submit scanning requests for required course readings that would have gone on Course Reserves. All files are delivered through ILLiad, our request management software, and can be shared via Canvas for educational purposes only.

Requesting UO Material

Books and AV Material

UO faculty, students, and staff can request to have available material paged and held at one of our current pickup locations or mailed to their home address. Please be aware that only a limited number of library employees are allowed on campus at a time to support remote teaching and learning for the entire UO community. Please be judicious when requesting UO material, and choose one of our pickup options in place of home delivery if possible. Click here to see current pickup and delivery options. 

Journal Articles and Book Chapters

UO faculty, students, and staff can also request journal articles and book chapters to be scanned for them. This service is free to UO faculty, students, and staff. 

Requesting from Another Library

Summit

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 emergency, Summit requesting will only be available from participating Alliance Libraries. Obtaining material from other libraries is taking much longer than usual and will be quarantined upon arrival.

UO faculty, students, and staff can request books and AV material from other libraries in the Orbis Cascade Alliance. This service is not available to the public.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 emergency, many libraries around the county are not fulfilling ILL requests. Obtaining material from other libraries is taking much longer than usual and will be quarantined upon arrival. Please use ILL judiciously.

Current UO faculty, students, and staff can request books, AV material, journal articles, and book chapters from libraries worldwide. This service is free for UO faculty, students, and staff.
