Can I request a book or video (even if it is checked out)
or have it sent from another ACC library?

Yes, you can. Here's how:

Note: Textbooks may be requested online from the Student Advocacy Center Textbook Collection after the first week of classes each semester. Online requests are not available at other times. Contact the Student Advocacy Center with questions.

  1. Use the Library Search Box to search for the item.
  2. On the next results screen, you will see an option to "Request this copy" in the holdings grid.
  3. Click on the copy you want to request.
  4. Fill in your ACCeID and password.
  5. Choose the preferred location for picking up your requested item.
  6. Click on the Request Item button to send your request (or close the pop-up window to cancel the request at this point).

NOTE on books/videos at other libraries: Items are pulled from shelves only once each morning (M-F). Campus mail delivery may take 4-7 days. If you require faster service -- or, if you have not heard from us within 10 days -- contact the library directly. Also note that items are not always returned by their due dates.

NOTE on requesting books/videos that are checked out: You will receive a message at your ACC email address when requested items are ready for pickup.

If you wish to suggest or request that a new title be purchased for the library, you can find more information here.
