How Do I Request A Book That Is Stored Off-Site?

The Request allows students to easily place an automatic request for books that are stored off-site.  The Request button will appear in the online catalog record.  To request retrieval of an off-site book, click the Request button and enter your name and library barcode in the template.  As in viewing your library record, type your name exactly as it appears on your NYLS student ID card and use the 14-digit barcode printed on the back of your card.  Books requested from off-site before 3:00 pm on weekdays should arrive within two business days. Books requested over the weekend should arrive by mid-week. You will be notified by e-mail when the requested book is available for pick-up from the Circulation Desk.

If you have any questions, please contact Elina Oyola, Circulation Librarian, at 212 431-2148 or by e-mail at
