Gleeson Library COVID-19 Update
We have resumed offering item pickup at the Circulation Desk. See all service updates.
Gleeson Library | Geschke Center offers a paging service for our patrons. If you would like to check out a library book, but do not have time to find it, you may request that we retrieve the book from our shelves and hold it at the Gleeson Circulation Desk for you.
Gleeson Library | Geschke Center Staff will page the book you requested and put it on hold for you at the library by 5 pm on the day after your place your request. The library will send you an email notification when the book you requested is ready to be picked up.
Anyone who can check out items from Gleeson Library | Geschke Center can place a page request.
You can place a page request online at any time by using the "Request" button located in the top portion of an item’s record in Ignacio, the library’s catalog. See below for step by step instructions.
You can request that we page most Gleeson Library | Geschke Center items. Sorry, we cannot page journals or periodicals, items from the Rare Book Room, Reserves, Law Stacks, or other non-circulating items (i.e.: items whose status reads "On Search," "Missing," or "Bindery").
If the item is checked out, you can still use the "Request" link or button. We will recall the item from the patron who has it checked out. When the item is returned, we will notify you that it is ready to be picked up. We will keep the item on hold at the Gleeson Circulation Desk for you for 10 days.
You are allowed to request ten items per day. If you request more than ten items per day, we will only page ten items and cancel any additional requests.
Most requests will be filled by 5pm on the day after you place your request. (Example: If you request an item at 2pm on Monday, we will make every effort to have your item available by 5pm on Tuesday. If you request an item at 3pm on Sunday, we will make every effort to have your item available by 5pm on Monday).
The library will send you an email notification when the book you requested is ready to be picked up at the Circulation Desk. We will also notify you if your request is cancelled. Requests maybe cancelled by library staff for a variety of reasons, not limited to: the item can't be located in the library, the item cannot be checked out to you, or you have exceeded your ten item request limit. View your library record to make sure the email we have on file for you is correct.
The library will hold paged items for you for 10 days, beginning on the date you receive our email notification that your request is ready to be picked up.
Pick up your items and check them out at the Circulation Desk of Gleeson Library | Geschke Center. A university ID is required for all check-outs, and ID privileges are non-transferable.
