Tulane Affiliates May Now Request Items from Howard-Tilton and Offsite for Pickup

Tulane faculty, students, and staff may now request circulating print materials held at either the main Howard-Tilton Memorial Library or its Offsite Depository by using the Request option in the Library Search discovery tool or the Classic Catalog. In either, the Request option appears once a user has displayed a record for an individual title after a search.  Requested materials will be checked out to the requester's library account and made available for pickup in the H-TML lobby entrance.

Pick up hours are:
  • Tuesdays: 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
  • Wednesdays: 11:00 am to 2:30 pm
  • Thursdays: 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Only people picking up requests will be allowed inside the entrance. Requests for materials must be limited to five per day, placed 24 hours in advance, and limited to materials not duplicated by formats online (including eBooks through HathiTrust).

To request an item from the library search, click on AVAILABILITY on the left side of the item catalog record.
