Library Materials by Mail

The “Library Materials by Mail” service is available only to students who are NOT enrolled for classes taught at the DeLand campus.

Books:

If you would like to borrow a book that can be checked out that you have found in the Library Catalog, email circdept@stetson.edu and include your name, mailing address, book title and call number of the books you need.

Please note that if the LOCATION of the item says REFERENCE, you may not request the book. Other Locations may be GOVTDOC, VIDEO, DVD, PRESSER and these are loaned at the discretion of the librarians.

If it is available for loan, the book will be mailed to you within 48 hours with a date that the book is to be returned. You will receive a mailing label so that the book may be returned by mail or you may return the book in person. Please note that you are responsible for returning the item and your student account will be billed for all items not returned. Please provide an email address so we can email you and let you know that the book has been mailed or let you know why we can not loan you the book.

Articles:

If you would like to borrow a magazine or journal article from a journal that we own (check the Journals List to see if we own a journal). For articles from journals we do not own, see Interlibrary Loan.

PLEASE NOTE: Many public schools, organizations, and businesses have firewalls that prevent the submission of forms. If you get an error message when using the form, email your request (your name, mailing address, and as much information about the article(s) requested that you can provide: title of article, title of journal, volume, issue, date, page numbers) to circdept@stetson.edu

If we own the journal and it is available for copying, the article will be mailed to you within 48 hours. Please provide an email address so we can email you and let you know that the article has been mailed or let you know why we can not send you the article.

Interlibrary Loans

At this time, we do not offer ILL for books to Stetson students at Celebration and St. Petersburg centers because of the time delays in multiple mailings. Your local public library should be able to do this for you.

We are happy to provide interlibrary loan service for journal articles. Please check the Journals List to see if we own the article before submitting an interlibrary loan request.

If you find citations to articles from journals that the duPont-Ball Library does not own, you may request them using this Interlibrary Loan Form. You may also use this form to request copies of articles held on the DeLand campus. Just note in the REMARKS section that Stetson holds the title and you are a Celebration student.

PLEASE NOTE: Many public schools, organizations, and businesses have firewalls that prevent the submission of forms. If you get an error message when using the form, email your request (your name, mailing address, and as much information about the article(s) requested that you can provide: title of article, title of journal, volume, issue, date, page numbers) to circdept@stetson.edu

In your message requesting an Interlibrary loan, give the FULL citation information on the journal article (author, title of article, title of journal, volume, issue, date, and page numbers). Incomplete information may result in a delay in getting your article. Give your FULL name and FULL address so that the article can be mailed to you. Be sure to let us know that you are a Stetson student at Celebration. Include your email address. ILL requests with incomplete personal information will not be processed.
