Book Delivery

If you are a Western Michigan University faculty and staff member, you can request books available at University Libraries or through interlibrary loan be delivered to you by intercampus mail for free. We also offer free book delivery services via UPS to students, faculty and staff who are enrolled in programs off campus.

Your book will be delivered to you within one to two business days. It may take longer if the item has to be requested through interlibrary loan from another library.

How do I sign up for book delivery?

For on-campus delivery, complete our book delivery sign up form. We will email you a confirmation when your enrollment is completed. 

If you are enrolled in a program off campus, email to find out if you are eligible for book delivery. 

How do I place a request?

Use your interlibrary loan account to request the delivery of books. Any items not available at the University Libraries will automatically be requested from another library through interlibrary loan.

Don't have an interlibrary loan account? Sign in with your Bronco NetID and password. You'll automatically be asked to create a new interlibrary loan account.

How much does it cost?

It is FREE!  However, items ordered through interlibrary loan may involve a fee. We’ll pay the first $10 of every request. You are responsible for anything over that. We will ask you before charging you.
