If you would like an item from our collection and prefer the convenience of contactless pickup, you can request that your items be pulled off the shelf for you .Our staff will retrieve the book and check it out to you. You will receive an "On Hold Shelf" email notification when the item is ready for pickup.
Requests should be made in advance and will be processed at regular intervals throughout the day.
All items (SPU-owned, Summit and ILL) can be picked up from a cart to the right of the main entrance of the Ames Library.
If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (206) 281-2228.
