Off-Campus Library Material Check Out Procedures
Library items can be shipped directly to your home at no cost to you.
Items that can be shipped out include all adult, children’s and young adult books, audiobooks, DVDs/BluRays, and oversized materials. Items that cannot ship out include equipment (laptops, iPads, cameras, chargers, etc.), textbooks, and other course reserve materials.
Follow the steps below to have an item sent to your home:
- Locate the item you are looking for through the online catalog.
- Place the item on "Hold" through the online catalog.
- Once you receive the email indicating that that the item is available, reply to the email indicating that you are an online student and that you would like the material shipped to you.
Note: Regular loan policies apply, as well as the fine and fee structure.
Watch the CVTC Library Search Tutorial to see step-by-step instructions on how to locate materials and place a hold.
You may drop-off any checked-out library materials at any public or academic library and they can return the material via our courier service. You can also ship the item back directly to us by postal mail, UPS etc, but you would be responsible for the returned shipping costs.
