Can I check out books?


Yes! UO students, faculty, and staff can check out books and other materials. Most of our library branches are open for in-person browsing and checkouts (check our website for current hours and access restrictions). You can also request items online in advance and select from a number of pickup and delivery options. 

  1. Find the item you want in LibrarySearch
  2. Log in with your DuckID when prompted. Look for the big yellow bar with the green button that says "UO Libraries users sign in to see request options."
  3. Click on the link "Request UO item."
  4. In the Pickup Location field, select one of the options. If you select Home Delivery, provide your mailing address at the bottom of the form.

For specific pickup locations and more information, read our page on Pickup and Delivery in Support of Remote Teaching and Learning

This service is available only to current UO faculty, students, and staff. There are no request/pick up options for Oregon Card members or other guest users.
