Eli Express is a time-saving delivery service that allows library users to have books paged from any of the participating Yale libraries for delivery to the Medical Library. This service is available to faculty, students, and staff of Yale University.*
Here’s how Eli Express works:
Search Orbis for the item you need and click on "Place Requests." Log into "Your Library Account", select “Request Staff Search or Delivery”, and choose to have the item held at the Medical Library Circ Desk for you to pick up. Materials requested will be available for pickup within 24 hours of placing the request, Monday through Friday. You can come to pick up the book sometime within the next ten days. If your request cannot be filled, you will be notified by email and through your Library account.
Eli Express may be used only for materials eligible to be borrowed. Non-circulating journals, periodicals, course reserve material, rare books, and microtexts may not be requested through Eli Express.
*Unfortunately, this service is not available to Yale-New Haven Hospital patrons or other units outside of Yale University.
