Circulating items from any UConn Campus library can be pulled and held for pickup at the library circulation desk of your choice. Locate the item you want through the Library's search http://search.lib.uconn.eduSign in to request, and click the Request from UConn link within the Find On Shelf section.

Items held at your own library will be available in 1 business day; items from a different library will take approximately 1-3 business days to arrive. You will receive an email when the item is ready for you to pick up. If the item is not found on the shelf, you will receive a cancellation notice; if you would still like the item, place a request (remove duplicate --  same is true for question called “Can you pull a book from the shelf and reserve it for me?”) a request using Interlibrary Services.  This service is available to UConn faculty, staff, currently enrolled students, and current community borrowers (community borrowers cannot use the Interlibrary Loan ILLiad service).
