Step 1

Navigate to the library website at: 

Use the Quick Search box on the library website to start your search.  Once you have a result list, use the filters on the left hand side of the page to further narrow the list if you don't see what you want right away.  If you are searching for a physical item, the most helpful filter options might be the "held by library" (under the Show Only options), the Resource Type, and/or the Location ("Circulating Books - 2nd Floor" will eliminate all textbook reserves, electronic books, and other items).

Step 2

Locate and select the book.   Click on the book title to open the detailed record.  When you have signed in to your Library account, you will see the "Request Curbside Pickup or Home Delivery" link.  (NOTE: this text has changed since the screen shot below!)

Step 3

Select either SUNY Broome Library (for pickup) or Personal Delivery/Home Address.  If you select Home Delivery, enter your mailing address in the Comment field.  Then click "Send Request."
