Boise State University students, staff, and faculty can request that a book be retrieved from the library shelves and delivered to their departmental office. Here's how: 

Search for the book you want using the search box on the Albertsons Library homepage at library.boisestate.edu.

From here, you can add a comment noting where you would like the book delivered, change the date after which you no longer need the book, and submit your request.

The confirmation screen will indicate that your request was successful. Don't be confused by the message stating "No holdings available." That's just indicating that the book is now checked out to you.

You can now relax and wait for your book to be delivered!
