Get This

Need a book from another U-M campus library? The Get This service will deliver books and other media that are available for check out to the campus library most convenient for you. This is a free service that is available to all library users affiliated with U-M.

How to request items for delivery:

  1. Locate the desired item in U-M Library Catalog Search.
  2. Use the Get This link to request pickup (you may need to click "Show all # holdings" first). You will automatically be prompted to log in with your U-M credentials if you are not already logged in. You may also select the linked Title to see more information and use the 
    Get This link from there.
  3. You will be prompted to choose a pickup location or delivery through Document Delivery.

Response time varies from 2-3 days if the book is on the shelf, to weeks or more if it's on order or currently on loan to someone else. In some cases, the quickest way to obtain an item is to go to the owning library and find it yourself on the shelves. You will be notified via email when the item has arrived at the requested location, where it will be held for 7 days.

If you are not affiliated with the U-M, you may request items to be held at the library location of your choice to be used within the library.
