When the library was closed due to COVID-19 during Spring 2020, we added these options for delivery and return of Briggs Library materials and materials requested from other libraries. Should a closure occur again, we will likely reinstate these options. Start by requesting your material through our ILLiad Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service.
Articles and book chapters: delivered electronically.
Book/video loans: 3 delivery options
