Contactless Pickup

The libraries are providing contactless libraries materials pickup for CU Boulder affiliates (students, staff, faculty). Affiliates may place up to 10 holds at a time through the library catalog [guidance on how to place a hold in the library catalog]. Once materials are paged, the hold notice received via email will contain a link to place a reservation for a pickup date. Materials will be available on the west porch of Norlin Library. Please follow Boulder and campus health guidelines when picking up materials.

Most materials held at Norlin Library and Gemmill Engineering, Benson Earth Sciences, and the Music Library may be requested. Materials from the William M. White Business Library currently housed in Gemmill due to construction may also be requested. At this time materials at PASCAL, our off-site storage facility, and some materials from HathiTrust are not available for contactless pickup.
