Library Express Delivery

Library Express Delivery Service (LEDS) delivers library materials for current FSU faculty members, graduate students, and staff with registered departmental office pick-up and drop-off locations, as well as students registered with the Office of Accessibility Services. Scanned articles and book chapters are also available for delivery via email. Deliveries are made during regular business hours and most items are delivered to department offices within 48 hours.

If you have questions or encounter any issues, please email the LEDS team (lib-delivery@fsu.edu) and someone from our team will contact you.

To make LEDS as convenient as possible for scholars, our team can even retrieve your items when you're finished with them. We do request that all item pickups be left in your department's main office so our staff can efficiently service the entire campus.

All you have to do is fill out the LEDS Pickup Request Form and make sure to leave your items in the appropriate place! Unfortunately, we are not able to pick up items directly from individual office rooms.
