Contactless Pickup at the Library is now available for everyone with a valid University Library account. Contactless Pickup can be arranged for borrowing physical items in our collection. Items from any University Library location can be requested for scanning or for pick up. University Archives and Special Collections offers select digital access, but remains closed.
USask students, instructors, faculty or employees located in Canada who are unable to come to campus to borrow books through Contactless Pickup can now register to have print library materials delivered to their residence, free of charge. You must first register for Distance & Distributed Library Services (DDLS) in order to receive a mailed item.
For requesting scans of portions of items in our collection, such as a book chapter, a print article, or selected pages from a book, refer to our Scan and Send service.
For requesting items that are not part of the University Library's collection, refer to Interlibrary Loans.
After submitting a pickup request, you will receive an email from the library notifying you when your items are ready. Please allow up to five business days for your request to be filled. The email will also include instructions to follow upon arriving at the Murray Library doors facing the Arts Tower.
Physical items (such as books) can be picked up from the Murray Library 1-4 pm, Monday to Friday (excluding holidays). To maintain physical distancing, follow the markings on the ground outside the doors facing the Arts Tower at two-metre (six foot) intervals. Photo identification is required to receive your items. We will keep your items available for you to pick up for 8 calendar days. If you do not pick up your items within 8 days, they will be returned to the shelves.
All items checked out after September 1, 2020, will follow regular loan periods as stated in our Borrowing Policies.
Please drop all items off in the book drop at the Murray Library loading dock. Please note that we quarantine returned items for 3-5 business days before checking them in. Items will still appear on your account until they have been checked in.
It is your responsibility to return library items by the assigned due date. If you are unable to drop off items directly at the library, please send them through the mail. It may take 3-5 business days for them to be checked in. Our mailing address is:
University Library, Circulation Unit
University of Saskatchewan
