Contactless Pickup

New Service for Employees of NCAR/UCAR/UCP

The NCAR Library is pleased to announce that we will begin circulating books for staff starting September 24, 2020, in order to better support your work during the COVID-19 closure.

Books and other resources in the NCAR Library will be available for pick up each week from 9:30am-3:30pm on Thursdays at both Mesa Lab and the Foothills Lab.

Requesting a Book

Use the NCAR Library Catalog to find the title you need, then either place it on hold or email

Picking Up Your Book

Requests made by Wednesday at noon will be available the upcoming Thursday.

Library staff will confirm that the book is available and send you the details of your pickup via email on Thursday morning.

You will be able to pick up the book in the vestibule of the building where that library is located. ML Library items will be available in the Mesa Lab main public entrance vestibule. FL Library items will be available in the FL2 vestibule (at the reception entrance). Please follow UCAR health guidelines when picking up materials.

Additional Information

Please note that we are distributing NCAR Library-owned books only at this time. We are unable to borrow print materials from other libraries until further notice. We are able to request PDFs of articles and book chapters.

Only Library staff have authorized access to any UCAR library facility.
