Books in the AMBS library general collection can be mailed to AMBS students and faculty who are not able to come to campus.
Another option is to have someone else (a "proxy") pick up books for you.
To request, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org identifying the books you need and how they should be handled.
AMBS Library offers a new "curbside pickup" service (for both community borrowers and AMBS students/employees). Simply request the materials you wish to borrow (see instructions below, or email email@example.com). Once they are available, you will receive an email indicating that the materials have been checked out to you and are available to be picked up. The books will be waiting for you on the shelf inside the Waltner Hall main entrance.
When finished, you can return them to the drop box outside the library's Tower Entrance.
After locating books via the library's "Books" search tab, students and faculty may use the "Get it" button and then "Place hold." You will need to sign in to the system to make your request.
Please follow up with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating whether you would like to pick up your books yourself, identify someone else to pick up your books, or have the library mail you the books.
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.
