Library2Go Physical Pickup Is Now Available

Author: 

We are pleased to announce the launch of Library2Go physical pickup for law students, faculty and staff.  This joins our on-demand scanning service as we support the Law School’s legal scholarship, education and research. Due to Covid-19 the stacks at the UConn Law Library continue to be closed.  

Which materials are eligible?  

All print materials that are not currently checked out and circulate are eligible for requests.  

How do I request a book? 

Requests for available items may be submitted through the library’s catalog.  

  1. Log in to the catalog with your NetID. 

  1. Once you have located the book you need, click ‘Request a Physical Copy’ 

 

  1. After filling out the form, the system will state ‘request placed’. 

  1. You will receive an email when the item is checked out to you and ready for pickup. 

  1. If you have a question, click on Ask a Law Librarian or email lawlibrary@uconn.edu

How do I pick up a book? 

Books will be checked out to you and placed on a booktruck with your name on them. They are arranged in alphabetical order by borrower last name and will be held for two weeks. After that, the books will be checked in, removed from your account, and reshelved.  

Pickup hours are Monday – Friday 10:00am – 3:00pm. Book pickup is at the main entry of the library building and requires UConn ID access. Face coverings are required to enter the building and while on campus.  

What do I do if I don’t have a UConn ID? 

Book pickup is in the entry of the library building and requires UConn ID access. If you do not have an ID, contact the OneCard Office directly to check your status and see if you need to upload a photo. ID cards will be mailed to your home address. 

How long does it take?  

Due to COVID-19 health and safety restrictions, our turnaround time may take up to 5 business days.  Please plan ahead and submit your requests well before your deadlines.    

How do I know that my request went through?  

After submitting your request, you should see a confirmation screen with a message saying, “Request placed.”    

How long can I check a book out for? 

Loan periods have been extended to 180 days with the opportunity to renew. 

How do I return materials? 

There is a bookdrop located outside the library main entrance. All items will be quarantined prior to handling and will remain on your library account for up to a week. All fines and fees associated with the quarantine period have been waived.  

If you are unable to get to campus you can mail your books to: 

Thomas J. Meskill Law Library  
39 Elizabeth Street  
Hartford, CT 06105 

Why can’t I request course reserves?  

Research shows that the Coronavirus can live on books for a least five days. For this reason, reserve materials are only available for digital scanning and all requests are subject to the University’s fair use and copyright policies.  

If you need a book that is currently on loan, please contact our Interlibrary Loan department, or Ask a Law Librarian.    

If you have questions about your request please contact lawlibrary@uconn.edu.
