About Requesting

Due to the current closure of UO Libraries, our Requesting options have changed.

Requesting Scan Service to Support Remote Teaching

Because UO Libraries is temporarily closed, we are unable to provide access to a traditional print/media Course Reserves collection at any of our locations. In lieu of this service, instructors can submit requests to have resources (UO Libraries' or their own) scanned that are required for remote teaching and learning. Files can be shared via Canvas or other means for instruction purposes only. Please follow the request link below to learn more about this service and submit a request. Please note, we are only able to scan print material. If you need media digitized to support remote teaching, please contact your Subject Specialist Librarian

Scan for Remote Teaching Request

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


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 emergency, the Orbis Cascade Alliance member libraries have suspended the Summit program until further notice.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 emergency, many libraries around the county are closed to employees and 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.
