Faculty & Staff Campus Book Delivery

Faculty and staff can request library items be delivered right to their Campus Department Monday through Friday, free of charge.

Update in Procedure

Dear Interlibrary Loan and Library Book Delivery User:

Starting August 12, the Library will update our procedure for making library item deliveries for interlibrary loan and Albertsons Library collection items. Because department offices are not always open, a staff member is not present to sign for the items, or there is no designated department office for the staff member, attempting to make deliveries can be problematic. Our new procedures will help alleviate some of those concerns.

Student employees will make deliveries at approximately 9:00-11:00 AM and 2:00 PM each day, Monday-Friday. After one unsuccessful attempt at delivery, items will be sent to mailstops via campus mail. During Spring Break, Thanksgiving week, and Winter Break, items requested to be delivered will be sent via campus mail.

These changes will allow us to streamline our processes, efficiently use student employee time, deliver items in a timely manner, and provide cost-saving measures to the Library.

If you would like to update your delivery preferences with Access Services or Interlibrary Loan, please contact us at libraryill@boisestate.edu or circulation@boisestate.edu.

Thank you for your understanding of this updated procedure. Access Services and Interlibrary Loan Staff
