Library and Learning Commons Services Update - COVID-19

Information on library and learning commons services during COVID-19.

Pickup Service

Requesting Items

The SCU Library offers a pickup service for physical library materials. All SCU faculty, staff and students are welcome to use the Library Pickup Service to obtain physical SCU Library materials in addition to LINK+ and Interlibrary Loan items.

  • SCU Library Materials: SCU Library materials can be requested through the library catalog, OSCAR or OneSearch. For items that can be requested, follow the "Request This Title" or "Request from ARS" link to submit your request. If you find an item in the catalog that you would like to borrow, but there is no option to request the item, please contact the Help Desk (408-554-5020, librarycirc@scu.edu) for further assistance.

  • LINK+: LINK+ allows for borrowing of books from other libraries throughout California and Nevada. You may search and submit requests directly through the LINK+ catalog or begin your search in OSCAR or OneSearch, then select LINK+ from within your search results.

  • Interlibrary Loan Items: Items not in the SCU Library collection or available through LINK+ may be obtained through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Books, book chapters and articles can be requested through your Interlibrary Loan Account.

You will receive an email notice once a requested item(s) is ready to be picked up. Please allow two to three business days for SCU materials to be ready for pickup; LINK+ and ILL materials may take a few weeks to arrive.

Picking Up Items

Items may be picked up at the Library Pickup Table during the following times:

  • Sunday - Thursday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
  • Friday, 10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

The Library Pickup Table is located at the Learning Commons entrance. Please bring your campus ID and and follow the posted instructions. A face covering is required to use this service and while on campus. 

If you are unable to come to the Learning Commons entrance, please contact the Help Desk (408-554-5020, librarycirc@scu.edu) to make alternative arrangements. 

Returning Items

Library materials can be returned at the Book Drop outside of the main entrance to the Learning Commons.

Please note:

Given current recommended quarantine periods, items might remain on your My Library Account up to four days after you have returned them. No overdue fines will be charged from this delay.

Please contact the Help Desk (408-554-5020, librarycirc@scu.edu) with any questions.
