 Accessing Resources (Remotely and In-Person)


Requesting & Retrieving Materials

Due to COVID-19, we recommend that patrons place a request via discoverE to get access to library items held at Oxford, other Emory libraries and the Library Service Center (LSC).

Placing a request in discoverE

To request an item, log in to your discoverE account, search for the item and choose the “Physical Item” tab. Click "Request" and select Oxford as the Pickup Location. Click the orange "Request" button to submit.

Retrieving Materials

We offer three options for retrieving materials once a request has been placed via discoverE:

  • No contact pickup – wait for a confirmation email and pick up the requested items to the left of the library desk.
  • Curbside pickup – contact us via email to arrange pickup. This is an option for patrons that have not been approved to return to campus.
  • Mailing option – fill out the Distance Student or Faculty Mail Request Form to receive item(s) in the mail.

Requesting an Article or Chapter (Document Delivery)

All Emory faculty and library staff are eligible for document delivery (scanned articles or chapters) from the Emory Libraries. Eligible materials include journal articles and book chapters from the print collections in participating libraries. Learn how to place a document delivery request.
