For faculty and grad students who need Library materials but don’t have a lot of time, Library Express On-Grounds (LEO delivery) can help you keep up with the multiple demands of teaching and research in a new semester. In just a few easy steps, you can have Library materials delivered directly to your department or a convenient pickup library!

Follow these directions:

  • Search for material in the Library’s online catalog Virgo.
  • When you have found something you would like, simply click the “Request Item” button in the record.
  • Sign in with Netbadge if prompted.
  • Under “Pickup Location” select “LEO delivery to my department.”
  • Click “Place Hold” and you’re done!

Graduate students: Check to see which departments have pickup spaces for grads. In cases where departments can’t provide a secure holding space for delivery to graduate students, grads can use their ILLiad account to select a preferred library pickup location — on the left side of the page under “My Account” choose “View or Change User Information.” First-time users signing on to ILLiad will be prompted to create an account.

The Library can only deliver items that are available for checkout, not items meant for in-library use such as Special Collections material, Reference collections, DVDs, and microfiche.

Faculty requests for materials borrowed through Interlibrary Loan will automatically be delivered to the departments. Graduate students may designate a pickup library for delivery.
