COVID-19: Library Resources and Services

Updates on library services during COVID-19

Curbside Pickup Beginning Week of June 8, 2020

Along with the online services we’ve been offering since March, we are happy to announce that we will be offering a service allowing you to request physical items from Skeen Library and pick them up through a low-contact system.

Faculty, researchers, administrators, and staff wishing to check out items from Skeen’s collection must fill out this form.

Requests placed by 1pm on Monday will be available for pickup on Friday from 11am-1pm. The items will be checked out to your account, and you will receive a confirmation email that your items are ready for pickup. If there is an issue with your request, you will be contacted by a staff member via email. A valid NMT ID will be required for pickup. The first pickup will take place from 11am-1pm on Friday, June 12th. Please place your requests by 1pm on Monday, June 8th for pickup on the 12th.

You may request up to 10 items per week. If an item is available digitally or in another electronic format, it will not be eligible for checkout. If an item is already checked out or in quarantine, it will not be available for checkout. Items that are usually non-circulating, in-library use only, or in special collections (including DVDs and other media) are not eligible for checkout.

Library staff have devised a pickup strategy that will allow for physical distancing and minimize contact between library employees and anyone picking up materials. Skeen Library remains closed so book pickups will happen only at the main entrance on the south side of the building.
