Book & Media Express
The Book & Media Express service now offers delivery and retrieval of materials held in Young Library for library patrons (UK faculty, staff, and graduate students) to the Young Circulation Department hold shelf. The Science & Engineering Library and the Fine Arts Library also offer same-site retrieval.
Book & Media Express, a service for faculty, staff, and students, offers the delivery of books from any campus library and media material from the Young Audio Visual Services Media Library to a different campus library. It also provides delivery to a pick-up point for all patrons needing any material retrieved from Storage - Library Collections.
