Request Books

Using Books and Other Items

During 2020-2021, EOU students, faculty, and staff can continue to checkout EOU owned library items through a request process. Library staff will pull items you request, and if you are in Union County you will get an email when the item is ready to be picked up (usually within one business day). If you are outside of Union County, then the library will mail the item to your home address and you will be responsible for return postage. Instructions for requesting items through Primo are listed below. Please contact us with any questions.

How To Request Items from EOU

4. Fill out the request form.

  • If you live in Union County select the EOU Library pickup location and you will be contacted by the library to arrange for a pickup time, as the building is currently closed to the EOU community and public.
  • If you live outside of Union County then select the Home Address pickup location and the item will be mailed to the mailing address listed in your EOU account. If you need the items sent to a different address, please specify this in the comments section. You will be responsible for return postage when sending the item back.

Once you have filled out the form click on the Request button to submit the request.
