Need a book? Don’t wait! Use the new Hold for Pickup feature

The UT Libraries’ Hold for Pickup service brings the books you need to a library service desk near you

Don’t have time to get to the stacks? The UT Libraries’ new Hold for Pickup service makes getting the books you need a little easier.

When you find the book you need in the libraries’ catalog, click the link labeled Request. Students, faculty, staff, and library subscriber card holders can have the books they need pulled and waiting for them at the service desks at Hodges Library, Pendergrass AgVetMed, Map, Music, and Preston Medical Library. It will take two business days to process most requests.

Library Express customers (faculty, graduate students, and staff) can have books delivered to their departmental offices (not personal) or use Hold for Pickup at the branch library of their choice. Library subscriber card holders can also have storage items as Hold for Pickup.
