Book the Rice Library

Accessing Physical Material

The Rice Library collection stacks are open, but items held in the library collections or borrowed through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) are also available for checkout through walk-in and curbside pickup. Users must make an appointment to pick-up items from the library collections and/or ILL.

USI faculty and staff also have the option to request and receive items through CampusExpress. In addition to the automated request for ILL and General Collection items in fUSIon, faculty and staff can use the walk-in and curbside pickup form to request media and other items be delivered to their campus office. Please note that you would prefer CampusExpress delivery on the Questions and Comment field on the request form.

Access to the Archives and Special Collections will only be by appointment, Monday through Friday, 8 am to 4 pm.
