Can you go to the shelf and get books for me?

The library provides a service called "Books on Demand."  

Books on Demand

The Books on Demand program is available to AU students, staff, and faculty. When you find a book in the catalog that you'd like pulled, click on the red "Request" button in the upper-right corner of the record.  If the book is available at American, the request will be sent to us first, we'll pull the book, and hold it in your name. If for some reason we are unable to find the book here, we'll move the request along to one of the other library consortium schools who will send the book here for your use.

Please note that books are only pulled once or twice a day. Placing a request does not prevent someone from checking out the book before it is pulled from the shelf.  If you have questions, please call the Circulation Desk 202 885-3221.
