Contact-less Pickup

(Updated Aug. 23, 2021)

As of August 9, you no longer need to book a contact-less pickup appointment. You can stop by to pick up library materials, check out items, and browse our stacks anytime we are open.

If you prefer, you are still welcome to request items and have the staff retreive them for you.

How to Request Library Materials

Log in to OneSearch to find the item you need. Click on "Request". You will not receive a confirmation email, but if you would like to check on the status of any requests, under "My Stuff", select "Account/Renew Books" and log in with your MUN ID and password. You can view your library account, including your requests.

Once your item is ready, you will receive an email and you can stop by the library whenever we are open and pick up your item/s. All of your items are held together on our "Holds" shelf under your last name. Items will be checked out to you in advance.

Non-medical face masks, minimum 2-ply, must be worn during pickup and 2m of physical distance must be maintained.

If you are located outside of the St. John's or Corner Brook area, we can mail items that are not available online through our Canada-wide mail delivery service.

Why can't I see "Request"?

  • You are not logged in to OneSearch. You must be logged in with your MUN Login in order to request items.
  • The item you are trying to request is not available. It might be an item that does not circulate (is on reserve or in reference), that is checked out to another user, is in-process, or lost or missing.
  • The "Request" link might be next to each item if there are multiple volumes or different formats available. Click on one of the individual items to locate the "Request" link.
  • The item is located at the Labrador Institute or Music Resource Centre. They are not currently able to fill requests for items.

Please contact the branch that owns the item if you are experiencing difficulties requesting it.

I don't have access to the Health Sciences Centre. How can I pick up my item/s?

Eastern Health is continuing restricted building access. If you do not have access to the building, you can schedule a contact-less pickup appointment for items at the Health Sciences Library. Staff will be happy to meet you at the MUNMed Entrance to bring you your item/s during your scheduled pickup time. Please call 864-6070 for assistance.
