Coronavirus 19 Update:
We are currently accepting requests for nationwide items, as well as our own. Wait times (for non-MSU items) are exceedingly long, as many libraries are still not open to circulate materials.
Starting July 6th, the library will be open for pickups. You will be able to pick up your book from the front desk Monday-Friday, 10am-2pm. You are required to submit your requests 24 hours in advance.
Curbside service will be from 10am-2pm on Monday/Wednesday/Friday. We will contact you by email to schedule a time. For questions: please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 606-783-5117. For more information, check out our Curbside Pickup page
Request It! Services encompasses four facets of content delivery:
Interlibrary Loan -obtains materials from other libraries. Off-campus delivery- delivers materials from our library to online and regional campus students/faculty/staff. On-campus delivery- delivers all obtainable items to faculty/staff. Pull to hold- for faculty/staff/students to have materials we already own to be pulled from the shelf and put on hold at circulation.
You can reach the login page from the link above or here. Use your MSU ID and password. It's the same as your blackboard and mymoreheadstate login. This login does require @moreheadstate.edu to follow your ID number. Always use a lowercase m.
If you've not used this system before, you will have to register. You will be prompted to log in and will then be forwarded to the registration page. Please fill out this information as accurately as possible. Your email address is your primary point of contact, so it's vital for communication that this email be correct.
There are two different forms you can fill out.
Here are some important things to note when filling out this form:
This service is free for faculty, staff, and students. However, items borrowed from other libraries do accrue overdue fines at $.50 per day.
To renew MSU items, simply log into your Library Account and renew the items online before they become overdue. If the items are past due, call the Circulation desk to renew the items at 606-783-5490.
To renew ILL items, log into your Request It! account as shown below or email email@example.com.
Renewals are at the discretion of the lending library. We will always try for a renewal, but sometimes it isn't possible. In this case, you will need to resubmit another request for another copy.
You can check the status of a request by clicking "Active Requests" on the menu, and selecting the transaction number for the correct request.
Scroll down to the bottom to see the "Tracking" table.
The Library will contact patrons when their items have arrived and are ready for pick up or delivery. Most articles arrive within a week, and books arrive within 2-3 weeks. Actual time will depend largely on the speed of the lending library.
Note: Books published with in the past the year are much harder to obtain. Many libraries will not send out their new books to other libraries, as they prefer to keep them on hand for their own patrons. You should still try, but the wait is often longer.
Faculty and staff who work on the main campus of Morehead State University can place a Campus Delivery Service request through the Library's online catalog for delivery of circulating items held by the Library. Student workers will deliver items to department or unit offices. Items may also be pulled and held at the Circulation Desk. If after 7 days the item is not picked up, the item will be returned to the collection.
Requests for the delivery service may be made at any time through the Library catalog; however, the actual delivery service is available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, during the Library's regular open hours. For example, a delivery request placed before 9 a.m. on a weekday will be processed and delivered to the person's departmental office the same day. The service is not available when campus offices are closed.
Stop by the Circulation Desk and ask to see a demonstration of the service. Or call the Camden-Carroll Library Circulation Desk at 606-783-5490.
