Novanet Express and Hold Requests
This is a document delivery service between Novanet libraries. Use it to send a circulating book from one Novanet library to your library. Copies of journal articles or chapters or essays in books can also be sent or even faxed to your home. Delivery takes 3-5 business days and it is free! This service is available to all patrons of Novanet libraries with active Novanet library cards. Note: copyright guidelines prohibit copying entire books or journals. For more details see our posters near the photocopiers or Learn more about copyright at AST.
These put you next in line for items which are currently signed out. The only available pickup location is the owning library itself. It cannot be sent to another library. There is no fee for putting a book on hold. Otherwise, the steps are the same as for Novanet Express.
