Does the library offer a book delivery service?



Yes, LSU Library offers book delivery to faculty and staff only. We deliver LSU Library books and interlibrary loan books to your departmental mailbox. Reserve and Government Document materials will not be included. To use the service, request the item through your interlibrary loan account. On the request form under "Delivery Options" select "Deliver to Departmental Mailbox." The request will arrive 2-3 business days from the date we receive the item.

Here’s how to get your materials delivered:

  • You will need an ILLiad account to make the request.
  • Once logged in, you will need to select "Deliver to Departmental Mailbox" for your Delivery Method. Books will be delivered to the departmental mailbox of the requestors within 1-2 business days.  A second attempt will be made if the delivery is not successful the first time, but if the department office is inaccessible again, patrons will receive an e-mail stating the problem and asking them to come pick up their materials. 
  • The materials will be placed on hold and kept at the Access Services desk for 7 days.  If they are not picked up in this time frame, they will be returned to the collection.  

Be aware of the following:

  • Users are responsible for getting materials back to the library as there is not a pickup service offered. 
  • Materials will be checked out to the patron’s library account prior to being delivered.
  • The user is responsible for the items requested through this service. 
  • Any LSU Library books not returned or renewed within 40 days of the due date will be considered “lost” and the usual penalties will apply.
  • A limit of eight physical material format items can be requested per day.
