The University of Texas Libraries has launched a new service that will help bring the Libraries’ resources to users.
Materials Retrieval allows patrons to request eligible resources to be retrieved from their regular location and delivered to the Libraries branch checkout desk of their choice for pickup.
The free service is available to all patrons with current checkout privileges — including courtesy borrowers — and there is no limit to the number of items patrons may request.
Most items will be available for pickup within three to five business days. Libraries materials that check out from participating libraries for 14 or more days are eligible for request (some restrictions apply), along with audiovisual materials from the Fine Arts Library, which check out for 7 days.
Retrieval requests are made from through the library catalog record of the resources, with eligible items displaying a “Request” button.
More information about the service is available on the Materials Retrieval FAQ page.
