Faculty Delivery Service

Checking Out Items

By using this service, you agree to have the item(s) you request checked out to your account by library staff without the need to present your ASU Faculty ID.

Method of Delivery

Items are delivered to departments through campus mail in reusable green bags. Please check with your department’s mail delivery area to pick up your items. Bags may be returned to the library directly or by dropping them in any remote library drop box.  Please note that IMC Kits, games, and other large items cannot be sent via faculty delivery.  These items can be held at the Library Service desk to be picked up.  Because we have a limited supply of delivery bags, please return them promptly after receiving your items.

Delivery Schedule

Items are shipped from the library throughout the day Monday through Friday. It may take a day or two for an item to reach your department after making the request, however.

Return of Items

You are responsible for all items checked out to your account until they are processed through the library return system. Items will be checked in and cleared from your record once they are received in the library. If returning items/bags through a remote drop box, there might be a 2–3 day delay in seeing items removed from your record. All items received from remote drop are backdated to insure that no additional penalties are incurred. Please do not use campus mail to return items or bags as our agreement with the mail service does not include return mail.
