Requesting Materials From Other Libraries
UO Library Materials
Most materials held in the Eugene campus branches of the UO Libraries can be delivered to UO users in Portland.
If you need an article you found in an online database linked from the UO Libraries webpage (such as Avery) request it directly by using the FindText link in the database:
If you didn't find the article in an online database, but you have its title, author, and some other citation details to help us find it, please request it via your interlibrary loan account.
For fastest service, include either "Docdel" or "UO Portland" in the Comments field and include the journal's ISSN number if you know it. Include your email address in the email field.
Books and Other Circulating Materials
You can request books, DVDs, bound journals, and some other items be sent to the Portland Library for pickup. To request these items, look them up in the library catalog and click "Request Item/Place Hold."
Be sure to choose "UO Portland Library" as your delivery point. Log in to your Library Account to see if requests are in transit or ready to pick up.
