Book an Appointment to Browse Library Stacks

Updated July 9, 2021

Our contact-less pickup service is still available and staff are happy to retrieve books for you, but if you would like to browse our book stacks, you can now book an appointment at any of our libraries. Appointments range from 30–60 minutes, depending on the branch. Library staff will be available to safely check out your items.

We ask that you have already completed your searching in OneSearch and come prepared with the call numbers for the items you need.

You must be a current Memorial University faculty, staff, student, retiree, and use your institutional email to book an appointment. These appointments are not intended for studying or computing/printing. If you would like to access our study spaces, please book an individual study space.
