Our print books and other circulating materials that are not available online are accessible through our new contact-less pickup service!
All Memorial University Libraries remain closed to anyone other than library staff.
How does it work?
Log in to OneSearch to find the item you need. Click on "Request". For the St. John's Campus, we are currently unable to send items to another library for pickup. For example, if a book is at the Health Sciences Library, it must be picked up there. The Grenfell Library is an exception. We will send materials between the St. John's and Corner Brook campuses. Please contact the owning branch.
Once your item is ready, you will receive an email and you can schedule an appointment for contact-less pickup. If you request multiple items, you only need to schedule one appointment. All of your items are held together on our "Holds" shelf under your last name until your appointment time. Items will be checked out to you in advance.
If you are located outside of the St.John's or Corner Brook area, we can mail items that are not available online. Please contact the owning branch.
Why can't I see "Request"?
Only current faculty, staff and students, as well as retired faculty, can request items. If you still cannot see the "Request" option, the issue might be:
- 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. This library is closed and their items are not requestable.
Please contact the branch that owns the item if you are experiencing difficulties requesting it.
