Curbside Pick-Up

Curbside pick-up is now available for print materials. Here's what you need to know:
  • We are accepting print material requests for pick-up. Requests from faculty will be processed first, followed by requests from graduate students and then undergraduates. 

  • We are able to fill orders from our general collections in Strozier Library, Dirac Science Library, and Remote Storage. Items available in HathiTrust will be filled electronically. For questions about other libraries and special collections, please Ask A Librarian.

  • You will be notified via email when the requested materials are ready for pick-up. We process requests Monday - Friday; please allow 48-72 hours for retrieval and processing.

  • Items will be available for pick-up Monday - Friday, from 8 AM - 5 PM, and will be held for three business days following the email notification. After three days the items will be returned to the collection and you will need to place a new request.

  • Per FSU guidelines, the libraries follow CDC protocol to keep you and our team safe. If you have travelled outside Tallahassee or have other reasons to quarantine, please wait until the end of your quarantine period before requesting materials.

Pick-Up Instructions

  • To pick up your request please park on Honors Way, across from Cawthon Hall, near the front entrance of Strozier Library (see map below). You will see a "pick up here" sign.

  • Call (850) 443-7223 and give our team your name. Our staff will bring the items to your vehicle.

  • If possible, please open your trunk from inside the vehicle and we will place the items inside. If this isn't possible, please notify the delivery person when you call and they will place the request on the ground next to your car for you to retrieve after they walk away.

  • For the safety of our patrons and staff, curbside pickup may be on hold during inclement weather. Please call ahead of time to ensure we can provide curbside service at the time of your arrival.

Pick-Up Location

The pick-up address is 116 Honors Way, Tallahasee FL 32306. (View in Google Maps.)


Returning Items

Our curbside service is only for pick-ups, not returns. You are welcome to keep items until FSU returns to normal operations. Due dates are listed in your account and will be automatically delayed until after the libraries reopen. If you wish to return materials, you may use a book drop on campus such as the one pictured below, or you may return them by mail to FSU Libraries, 116 Honors Way, Tallahasee FL 32306.
