About the Service

Please use the form below to request a book for in-person pickup.

  • Before requesting, search the library’s catalog to check that we have the book.

We will contact you if we have any questions about your request. Please include an email that you check frequently; it does not have to be your BMCC email.

You will receive an email when the book is ready. For pickup requests, do not come to pick up your materials until you receive an email from us to say they’re ready. Scanning requests will be emailed when they are available.

Due to campus procedures there may be some delay in processing requests. Materials may take a week or more to be processed before being made available.

Please plan ahead in requesting materials. We cannot accommodate “rush” or “ASAP” requests.
