Getting books and articles delivered from the other SFU campus libraries

Find the book, video or journal article in the library catalogue and sign in to your account to see the option to place a hold/request. After choosing your item, you can then select the branch where you would like to pick up the item.

Book / Video

Log in to your account in the Catalogue, then select "Place a hold" to request the book or video (or other material). The item will be sent to the Circulation/Loans desk if you choose to pick up at the Belzberg Library (SFU Vancouver), at the Holds Shelf at the Fraser Library (SFU Surrey), or on the Holds shelf in the Reserves area if you choose W.A.C. Bennett Library (SFU Burnaby), usually within 2 days.

You will be notified by email when your item is ready for pick up. For more information, please see How do I know when a book I've requested is ready to pick up?

Article in a journal

For an article in a paper journal only held at a library branch you normally don't use, check the holdings information in the catalogue, which lists the journal volumes owned by the SFU Library, to be sure that the specific volume and date that you need is available.

Then sign into your account in the Catalogue and follow the directions for requesting the item/placing a hold. The article will be sent to you electronically using the Library's secure Post-to-Web service, usually within 2 days.

You can also request microlog fiche from Bennett Library. From the catalogue, place a hold just as you would for an article. Title of the publication and fiche number are all that's needed.
