How to Request

You can request Storage Basement items online using the Milner Catalog. In the full catalog record for an item, use the Request button near the top of the screen. Enter your university identification number (your UID from your Redbird card) and last name. Then follow the screen prompts. To confirm your request, re-enter your UID.

When requesting journals or magazines, you will be prompted to specify the volume you need. If you need more than one volume, you'll need to place separate online requests for each. When requesting microforms, please make sure to be specific with regard to date and volume, etc., and note whether you are looking for microfilm or microfiche in the comments section.

When Requested Items are Available to You

Items are retrieved at regular intervals throughout the day. You will receive an e-mail notification when your requested materials are available at the circulation desk, where they will be held for two weeks. Most requests will be filled within a few hours. In some cases (including late night requests), your request may not be filled until the next day.
