How do I get access to materials listed in the catalogue as being in "Closed Storage" at the Bennett Library?

Closed Storage is an area of the W.A.C. Bennett Library (SFU Burnaby) that is only accessible by library staff.

To request that a specific item located in closed storage be retrieved for you, look up the item in the Library catalogue, and use the Request function as you would for a book on loan or at another campus (see Request instructions). Items requested online, Monday to Thursday, will be available from the Circulation/Loans desk on the next day, after 4 pm. Items requested Friday, Saturday or Sunday will be available on Monday of the following week after 4 pm.

Requests can also be made in person at the Circulation/Loans desk and are usually available the same day. Closed storage runs for in-person requests are made at the following times:

  • Monday - Thursday 9am, 1pm, 4pm, 8pm
  • Friday - 9am, 1pm, 4pm, 7pm (the library closes at 10pm)
  • Saturday - Sunday 11am, 3pm, 7pm

You can also Request these items for delivery to our other campus libraries. Allow two working days after your request for the item to arrive at Belzberg Library (SFU Vancouver) or Fraser Library (SFU Surrey). 

For further assistance, contact Bennett Loans staff at 778.782.4345, by email, or in person.
