If you would prefer to pick up your books at the Check-Out & Reserves Desk rather than go up to the shelves, you can request them through the library catalog by following the steps below. If you need your book today, we recommend you get it from the shelves yourself by following the instructions on the Find books on the shelf page.

  1. Once you've found a book, make sure it's available. I'll use Nnedi Okorafor's The Book of Phoenix as our example - you can see in the screenshot below that it is available. If it is available, click on the title.

  2. Click on the sign in link and login with your Laker NetID and password.

  3. Click the link that says Request for pick-up at Penfield Library (within 1-3 business days).

  4. Add any comments if necessary (where it says Comment), and click the Send Request link.

  5. That's it! You will receive an email when the book is ready for you to pick up.
