Second - Sign in.  You will use your SUNY Potsdam login.  If you are already logged into another Potsdam service, like e-mail, you will go straight through.  Otherwise you will be directed to the SUNY Potsdam Login screen.

Third - Click on the item that you want us to get for you and click on the “request curbside pickup” link from the middle of the page.  This link does not show up unless you are logged in and looking at a single item.  It is NOT on the longer list of results.  If you are not seeing the link, make sure that you are searching ONLY the SUNY Potsdam Library Catalog and not Everything

Fourth – You will receive an e-mail confirming that you have requested the material.  

Fifth – Timing:

  • Submit requests by 8:00pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evening to be available the next day.
  • Requests submitted on Friday and through the weekend will be available Tuesday.  You can check on Monday, but we cannot guarantee that a three-day volume will be available on Monday.
  • Pick up requests Monday – Friday either 10-12 or 2-4 at the Research Center in the Lougheed Learning Commons.
  • Materials requested from collections in the Crane library may be retrieved at Crane library in Schuette Hall after 10:00am the day after they are submitted.


if you don’t find what you’re looking for in our catalog, chat with a librarian, and we can help you borrow items from other libraries through Resource Sharing for Books and InterLibrary Loan for Articles.
