Book Lending Resumes

August 20, 2020 - 2:19pm by John Gallagher

We are excited to announce the resumption of several on-site library services, including book lending though a contact-free pickup system.

Simply select "Request for pickup at the Medical Library Entrance" in the Orbis record of the book you wish to borrow, enter your login credentials, and complete the prompts to place your order. Once submitted, the book will be checked out to your account and you'll be notified by email when it's ready for pickup. Your book will be held on a cart outside the medical library entrance for one week.

If you have questions or can’t pick up your item in the allotted time, please email AskYaleMedicalLibrary@yale.edu before your pickup period expires.

To return materials, simply drop them in the book depository outside the medical library entrance.

When retrieving or returning items, please adhere to the following safety protocols:

  • Maintain social distancing
  • Wear a mask
  • Move through pickup area as quickly as possible
  • Avoid touching surfaces or materials waiting for pickup by others
