Contactless Pickup

Last updated: August 31, 2020

You can access digitized versions of many items in our physical collection through the HathiTrust Digital Library. When you view relevant item records in Library Catalog Search, it will indicate “Full text available online.”

If you need an item not found there, you can request a copy through our contactless pickup service. 

Only materials located on Central Campus (in the Hatcher, Shapiro, and Fine Arts libraries) and in offsite shelving at the Buhr Building are available at this time. 

To prioritize the health and safety of our staff and community, we encourage use of online materials whenever possible.

Make a request

Use Get This in Library Catalog Search to request items. 

Current U-M students, faculty, and staff may place requests and are limited to 10 per day.

You will only see the Contactless pickup at the library option if an item is eligible for the service. Options to scan a small portion or request a digital copy are also offered when possible.

Pick up your request

We will notify you via email (or text message if you’ve opted in) when your item is ready.

Go to the Shapiro Library and use your Mcard to access the building. You do not need to check-in with anyone when you arrive. Follow the signage and go left to the shelving area in the atrium. Find your name, take your items, and head back out the east exit.

Requests are held for 5 business days.

North Campus materials

We anticipate adding contactless pickup options for North Campus materials at the Art, Architecture, and Engineering Library and Music Library later this semester.
