Library staff will retrieve books from the stacks at Gleeson Library | Geschke Center, check them out to your library account, and have the books delivered to your campus department mail stop. If you would rather have the book you are requesting held at Gleeson Library for you to pick up, please use our paging service.
Any USF Faculty member whose library account is in good standing (no overdue recalls, fines, etc.) can use this service. You must be designated as Faculty by USF Human Resources. At this time, proxies cannot request deliveries for faculty members.
You can place a request online at any time by using the "Request" button located in the top portion of a book’s record in Ignacio, the library’s catalog.
You can place a Gleeson Delivers request on most Gleeson Library | Geschke Center books.
Sorry we cannot deliver videos, DVDs, or cassette tapes, journals and periodicals, Jesuit Community Library, Special Collections, Rare Book Room, Reserves, or Law items, and/or other non-circulating books (i.e.: books whose status reads "On Search," "Missing," or "Bindery.")
Please note, the Gleeson Delivers service cannot deliver Link+ or Interlibrary Loan materials. You will need to come to the library to check out books you order from other libraries.
Click the Request button! We will recall the book and send it to you once it is returned.
You may also be able order books that are checked out or unavailable at our library via the library’s Link+ service, but we cannot deliver Link+ books. You will need to come to the library to pick these books up.
You may request any number of books, but please be aware that requests with large numbers of books may require more time for processing and delivery.
By the next business day, Circulation staff will locate the requested book in our stacks. Once the book is retrieved, we will check out the book to you, package the book for delivery via USF Campus Mail, and send it to the department mail stop you selected.
We will send you an email when your delivery request has been processed by the library. Once you receive this email, please allow three business days for campus mail delivery. We will also notify you if your request is cancelled. Requests may be cancelled by library staff for a variety of reasons, not limited to: the book is being repaired or is missing, the book cannot be checked out to you, or the book has been placed on reserves. View your library record to make sure the email we have on file for you is correct.
You may return books by bringing them back to the library, depositing them in the library’s outside book drop, or sending them back to us via campus mail. Please note, books returned via campus mail will not be signed for or tracked on their way back to the library. When your package is signed for upon delivery, the library relinquishes responsibility for the books enclosed. It is your responsibility to see that books are returned to us on time.
Please let us know! If you do not receive your delivery request within three business days, please call the Access Services Department at 415-422-2662 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
