Students, faculty, and staff can place requests for physical items (books, CDs, DVDs, etc.) for pickup, mail delivery or digitization using the QuickFind system. View our Quick Find guide for help using Quick Find. Requests can be made in Quick Find for items from the Archer, Luther, Campion, and First Nations University Libraries.
For digitization requests of print material you will be emailed a scanned pdf copy of the requested content (restrictions apply). Digitization requests for video material is only available to Faculty for Reading Lists (more information is available here).
You will receive an email notifying you that your hold items are available for pick up at your chosen pick up location. They will be held for 7 days after which time they will be removed from hold and returned to the library collection.
If you have chosen the Archer Library as the pickup location, then your items will be available for pick up in the Archer Library Book Pickup Lockers. When the book lockers are full, then any overflow hold requests will be available for pick up at the Archer Library Help Desk."
Hold requests are processed by staff from Monday through Friday. Turnaround time for all requests will vary depending on the location and availability of the requested items. Due to potential shipping delays, we cannot provide a delivery estimate for mail requests.
The estimated turnaround time for print digitization requests is 48 hours assuming the items are available. Digitization requests are processed Monday through Friday.
