University Libraries has developed a service that will allow library usersto request physical books from the main campus library collections and pick them up through a low-contact system.
Borrowers must first request the book through anonline form, then can them upfrom Zimmerman Library during a specific time offered once a week. Requests of up to10?print items per weekare allowed.Both UNM affiliated and those with a community borrowers? cardcan use this service.
Items requested by Mondayat9 a.m. will bechecked out to the requestors account andavailable for pickup on Friday.Pickup on Fridaywill befrom 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Zimmerman Library's North entrance.A valid ID will be required for pick up.If there is a?problem?withtherequest,requestorswill be contacted by a staff person via email. Items will be held for two weeks for pickup before being returned to the shelves.
Library staff have devised a pickup strategy that will allow for physical distancing and minimize contact between library employees and anyone picking up materials. Zimmerman Library remains closed as required by UNM guidelines so book pickups will happen onlyat the entrance doors on the north side.
Since the start of limited operations, library users have hoped for access to physical books in addition to the extensive access toebooks and other online materials . Mostcirculating print items from anyMainCampuslibrary facility? Centennial Science & Engineering Library, Fine Arts & Design Library, Parish Memorial Library and Zimmerman Library ? can be requested through this service,although if the item isavailable asanebookit isnot eligible for carry out.Items from special collections that do not normally circulate, including DVDs and other media, are not a part of this service.
