CU students, staff and faculty may request materials from any CU location, including the PASCAL off site facility. You may also request materials we don’t own that are checked out, lost or missing.

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.

The Libraries have suspended all mailing, lending, or borrowing of physical items from other libraries.
