Getting Materials from OSU Libraries

The OSU Libraries are here to help you find the research materials you need to succeed. Even if you don't come to campus, you have access to many resources. One of our most important services for registered Ecampus students is our book and document delivery service.

1. We can mail books and other media in the OSU Libraries collection to your home address via FedEx. If we don't have the material, we'll get it from another library and mail it to you. Please note we cannot send materials to PO or APO boxes. In general, we are able to ship outside of the United States.

  • Delivery time: 5-7 days. Please retain your Fedex tracking number.
  • Loan period: Varies according to your status. Books from Summit libraries (Pacific Northwest regional libraries) check out for 6 weeks with no renewals.
  • Returns: You are responsible for mailing materials back to us. Please use the enclosed free FedEx shipping label.

2. We can also send journal articles. OSU has access to many full-text journals online. However, if we have a print-only journal, we will e-mail you a scanned copy. Journal articles are yours to keep and do not need to be returned to the library.

  • Delivery time: 1-2 days for 80% of our requests

Getting Material from the Human Services Resource Center

Items in 1Search marked "Location: HSRC Textbook Lending Program  Champinefu Lodge" are not part of the libraries' collections, and we cannot ship them to you. These items are part of the Human Services Resource Center's Textbook Lending Program.

Ecampus students can participate in the HSRC's Textbook Lending Program if they visit the HSRC's Corvallis office in person. The HRSC has more information on services and support for off-campus students.
