Q. How do I ask for books to be mailed to me?
I'm a student, and I live in California. I would like to have the library send books to me so that I can do research. How do I request these items?
Book Request Instructions
To request up to six books, find their availability in our Online Catalog. A book eligible to be sent will display as Location: Hamilton - Goddard Circulating Coll…Available or Location: Charlotte Circulating Coll…Available.
Copy and paste the Title, Author, Location and Availability into:
- The library's contact form. (You will be prompted to enter your contact information and given an opportunity to copy and paste the book information and indicate which campus from which you are requesting the books.)
- An email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org (for items at the Goddard Library) or to email@example.com(for items at the Lindsell Library). Also include your name, your student ID number, and your mailing address.
Attention Hamilton Students On-Campus: During the COVID-19 closure, you can use these methods to request up to six (6) items to be delivered to your mailbox. Be sure to include your GCTS Mailbox Number (not your apartment mail box).
Depending on your location, you will be notified by email or phone when books have been sent. Regardless of your location, books must be returned by mail directly to the lending library and postmarked before or on their due date.
Attention Charlotte students: If you live or work within a 30 mile radius of the Charlotte campus or commute there weekly, please note this in your email request.
