Books in the AMBS library general collection can be mailed to AMBS distance students.
After locating books via the library's Books and Media search tab, distance students may use the "Place hold" button and sign in to the system to request an AMBS library book be delivered to them by mail.
Library materials may be renewed once for the same time period as the first loan. Renewals may be requested three ways:
It is the borrower's responsibility to ensure that materials are safely returned to AMBS.
Please use a delivery service with return or tracking service (US Postal Service Media Mail does not have return service). If books are lost in the mail, borrowers will be asked to pay standard replacement or processing fees.
Borrowers should retain the library's packaging materials to re-use for the return shipment.
Not available for mailing
Books by mail service is only available to current AMBS students and faculty.
Borrower pays for return shipment to AMBS.
Borrower will pay for the replacement cost and a $20 processing fee for any materials that are lost or damaged while on loan, including items in transit to or from the library.
In this short video, AMBS Librarian Karl Stutzman demonstrates signing in to AMBS WorldCat to view and renew loans and view and modify requests.
