Syracuse University Libraries is now offering another option for contactless pickup via newly installed automatic lockers.  Anyone with a valid SU or SUNY-ESF ID can borrow items and indicate whether they want to use the contactless Bird Library Locker pickup option. The new lockers are located immediately inside the Waverly Street entrance.  Other options for retrieval of physical items include:

  • Bird Library Check Out Desk
  • Carnegie Library Check Out Desk
  • King+King Architecture Library Check Out Desk
  • UPS Delivery to off-campus locations

Users borrowing an item will be directed to the Libraries’ ‘Interlibrary Loan, Request & Hold, Scans’ page once they select ‘Request this item.’ From there, users can select ‘Bird Library Lockers’ from the dropdown options. Once the request has been submitted, users will receive an email that indicates the item is being processed. When the item is ready for pickup, users will receive a follow up email indicating that the item is available for contactless pickup at the Bird Library Lockers and will be held for 3 days. To retrieve items from the locker, users will enter the access code in the email, scan the QR code in the email, or download and use an application. If items are not after 3 days but are still needed, contact circhelp@syr.edu or 315-443-5727.
