Request Materials


Please use the Reserves System to make a request.

Please note: Students may request items not owned by any of the Columbia Morningside Campus libraries, and should search both TC and CU library catalogs before submitting a request. Note that there are many online journals in the TC and CU Catalogs (also on the TC e-Journals A-Z list and CU e-Journals A-Z list). Requests are also accepted for missing books or articles.


Please use the Reserves System to make a request.

We offer faculty a document delivery service which should cover the range of research needs. One can place a request for anything you need for your personal research or your course reserves. We will obtain the materials according to your needs through a variety of methods, including retrieval from all the Morningside campus libraries, purchase, and interlibrary loan. Articles and chapters will be delivered electronically. Books from both the TC Library and the CU Morningside campus libraries will be retrieved and available for pick-up at the Services Desk, as will books, videos and other materials we purchase.

Please note that materials borrowed via interlibrary loan, such as books, dissertations, videos and other physical items, cannot be placed on reserve. For more information, see our Faculty Guide.
