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.
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 pickup location you designated when making your request, and use your Mcard to access the building. You do not need to check-in with anyone when you arrive.
Requests are held for 5 business days.
