How do I request a book from the basement?


LMU students, faculty, staff and other patrons with library records may request books online through our library catalog. Items that are "Available" in the catalog may be requested by clicking on the red "Request" button near the top of the item record.

If you would like to request a book that is checked out or otherwise not available, please try the LINK+ button on the right or contact the Information Desk for more help.


Patrons without library cards may request Basement Storage books (for use in the library only) by coming to the Circulation Desk to fill out a walk-up form. Please ask at Circulation for more details. During normal business hours, items are generally paged within the hour, but times may vary depending on availability of staff and number of requests.
