Yes, you may request office or home delivery of books, DVDs, and InterLibrary Loan items. To request an item, log in to InfoHawk+ at search.lib.uiowa.edu. Requests will be processed the following day.

To have an item delivered to your home or office, use the following steps, but please consider a few things first.

  • Be sure to provide your full mailing address (no P.O. boxes) including zip code, for efficient processing of your request.

  • A pdf scan of a chapter of the book can be sent as an alternative to mailing the full book. That option is available in InfoHawk+.

  • Requesting a book by mail will take longer than requesting a chapter to be scanned as a pdf.

  • Home delivery of physical books is not available from the Law Library.

To make a request: 

  1. Sign-in to InfoHawk+ using your HawkID or Community Borrower credentials, then search InfoHawk+ to find the item.

  2. When looking at the detailed record of the item, select "Request Physical Item."
    (Remember, for faster delivery, you can "Request PDF of Book Chapter." If you choose that option, you'll be routed to our InterLibrary Loan / Document Delivery system.)

If you prefer, you can have items held for you to pick up at the library of your choice through the same request process in InfoHawk+. You'll get an email when items are ready for pick up at the library's service desk.
