Faculty & staff book delivery from LSU Libraries

womanwithlaptopAccess Services at LSU Library offers a Book Delivery service for faculty and staff. Materials requested from LSU Library and from Interlibrary Loan are delivered directly to departmental mailboxes on campus.

To use the service, patrons should request books through their Interlibrary Loan account and specify a delivery option: either hold for pickup at the library or deliver to a departmental mailbox. The library retrieves the item from our holdings or borrows it from another library, then delivers it to a department mailbox. The service typically delivers local books in 2-3 business days and interlibrary loans book 2-3 days after they arrive at the library.

The service launched in 2016 and is approaching 5,000 items delivered to campus mailboxes.

“Book Delivery is a popular service for faculty and staff because it is convenient and quick. Patrons request an item from LSU Library, and it appears in their department mailbox like magic. We think patrons appreciate that it works for local items and for interlibrary loans, too. I hope faculty and staff keep taking advantage of the service and give us feedback as we look for more ways to meet their needs.”
