To request a book by mail, first find the book in the Library catalogue. You will also need to be signed into the catalogue to request a book(s) by mail. Click on the book's title to get to its record page, then click on "Get it from a Waterloo library", this will pull up a form to fill out. Select 'Books by Mail' as your Pickup Location, and click Send Request to place your request.
For UW owned books:
You will receive one email asking for your home delivery address. Please provide your address for each book requested.
For books request from other university libraries:
Once you have placed your Books by Mail request you will receive two email messages from the Library. The first email is automatically generated and will state "hold available". You will then need to wait for the second email from the Library that will ask you to enter your mailing address. If you have requested more than one book by mail, you will need to do this step for each book requested. To be able to receive your book(s) by mail it is essential that you follow the instructions given on the second email and enter your mailing address.
