The library's Closed Stacks are located on the Marquam Hill campus and only open to library staff. If an item you need is located in the Closed Stacks, you can request that it be pulled and sent to one of the Library's service desks or to you via campus mail.

Requests are pulled from Closed Stacks twice a day, Monday-Friday. You will receive an e-mail when your request is available for pickup.

If you have a library barcode or an OHSU Network ID:

Go to Library Search and sign in with your Network ID or your library barcode and password.

Once you are signed in, search for the item you'd like to request. When you have found it, click on the Availability & Request Options link. A drop-down menu will appear, giving you the option to Request/Place a hold. Click on that link, then select your Pickup Location and click Request.

If you do not have a library account:

If you are not affiliated with OHSU and do not have a library account, please contact the library to discuss options. Most public and academic libraries in the Pacific Northwest can obtain our materials through interlibrary loan programs, and we strongly encourage you to explore those options.
