Request & Retrieve

Need a book? Can’t get to the Library right away?
We’ll get it for you!

Our "Request and Retrieve" service allows patrons to place holds on StFX books that are in the library. Books will be retrieved by staff within one business day and made available for pick-up at the Access Services Desk. Patrons will receive an e-mail notification when the item is ready or if there is an issue filling the request.

Please note that this program is offered for BOOKS ONLY.

For more information about this service or to learn how to use the program, please visit the Access Services desk, or call us at 902-867-2228.
