Requesting Books for Pick Up or Digitization


1: Make sure you are signed in! If you are not signed in, you will see this yellow banner reminding you to sign in:


2) For books that are "available at Collins Library," you have two options. Click the request for Tacoma Pickup link, and you'll get an email when it's available (1-2 business days). Alternatively, you can request that a portion (up to 1 chapter or approximately 10%) of a book be scanned and delivered as a PDF. Click the 'digitize it' link to request that option, and specify which portion of the book you'd like to have.


3) For books that are not available (they say 'check holdings'), you may be able to request them through Summit if you are local. Click the 'Request from Summit' link. Typically Summit books are delivered within 4-5 business days.
