Cook Delivers and Media Requests

Cook Delivers is a delivery/pick-up service for library materials offered to Towson University faculty and staff, which runs Monday-Friday during the Fall and Spring semesters.

Requests placed before 10:00 A.M. will be fulfilled on the same day, while requests made after 10:00 A.M. will be fulfilled on the next business day. Please bear in mind that this service is operated by our student assistants traversing campus on foot, so we cannot deliver to / from specific faculty offices, as we cannot guarantee deliveries at specific times.  We also cannot deliver to departmental mailboxes, as we require signatures for every item dropped-off/picked-up.

Deliveries

TU library books listed as “available” in the TU Library catalog, as well as items from other libraries that you have requested (and have arrived on our Hold shelf), can be delivered to department reception desks with full-time staffing. Simply send a delivery request for each item you would like delivered.

Pick-Ups

All materials borrowed directly or indirectly from the TU library can also be picked up from department reception desks by filling out the Pick-Up Request Form. Please note that we can only pick up 10 items/day – if you have more, please submit additional requests on subsequent days.

Media

If you would like to request A/V materials (DVD/VHS/Blu-Ray) from our collection to show in a classroom, you can use our Media Request Form to schedule a date for screening/s and delivery.

Document Delivery

The scanning and emailing of Cook Library’s print journals and book chapters is also available to faculty. To place a request, please use the interlibrary loan system.
