Please read the updated Library Pick-Up and Document Delivery service procedures to provide access to Leatherby Libraries physical materials.

To request an item for Curbside Pick-Up, follow the instructions to initiate a request:

Prior to requesting, all patrons must complete the return to campus procedures to be authorized to be on campus. Chapman University requirements are available at Return to campus process for one time visitsReturn to campus process for staff, faculty, and graduate research students).

Locate items in the online library catalog and use the “Place a Hold” feature to request an item. Patrons will be prompted to enter their name, University ID number, and library PIN to authenticate and complete the request.

Once the items have been paged, an email will be sent notifying the patron that their items are ready for pick-up.

To request an item for Document Delivery, complete the following two-step process to initiate a request:

Document delivery service requests are limited to a maximum of five items through the end of August 2021.

Due to the nature of the dissertation process, document delivery service requests for Doctoral students are limited to a maximum of ten items through the end of August 2021.

Step 1: Locate items in the online library catalog and use the “Place a Hold” feature to request an item. Patrons will be prompted to enter their name, University ID number, and library PIN to authenticate and complete the request.

Step 2: Patrons must email the Circulation Department at libcirc@chapman.edu to request that their item(s) need to be shipped. This email must also include their current physical home address.

Items will not be shipped if current physical home address is not confirmed.

Circulation staff will pull the items from the library collection. Items will be packaged and shipped to the patron’s physical home address. All packages will include a return mailing label to be used when shipping the items back to the library.

 

The following items are ineligible for shipping through the Document Delivery Service: Physical course reserves; and items from the Huell Howser Archives, the Center for American War Letters Archives, and the Frank Mt.

Renewals

Patrons can renew most items by accessing their library account online, utilizing the MyLibrary! application, or calling the Circulation Department at (714) 532-7723. Items cannot be renewed if they have reached a maximum renewal limit or are requested by another patron.

Patrons are responsible for keeping track of all due dates when renewing online; only system posted due dates are valid.

Returning Materials

Patrons that are authorized to be on the Chapman University, Orange Campus can return items in the outside 24-hour book drop.

Patrons are responsible for returning borrowed items by the due date to the Leatherby Libraries. Do not return items to the Rinker Campus. Items are not considered returned until they are received at the Leatherby Libraries. Items can take up to 7 business days in transit before they reach the library. Shipping days are factored into the checkout time. Patrons will use the provided Return Label and envelope to mail items back to the Leatherby Libraries. Retain the USPS Tracking Slip that includes the tracking number in case items are lost in transit.

Interlibrary Loan Service

The Interlibrary Loan Department is currently processing requests for journal articles. Limited processing for physical items is also available. See the Interlibrary Loan page for more information.
