How can I request and checkout physical items from the Libraries?

As of Monday, August 16, 2021, you may visit our library locations to browse the stacks and check out books.

If you prefer, you may continue to utilize our request system and have items retrieved for you. To checkout a book or other physical item:

  • Use the library catalog to locate the item.
  • Login to your library account to place your request.
  • Library staff will pull the item, and you will receive an email when the item is ready to be picked up at the Information Desk or other designated area.
  • If you encounter difficulty placing your request, email fencirc@gmu.edu for assistance.
