UAB Libraries now has a courier service to transport books and other library materials between Lister Hill Library, Lister Hill Library at University Hospital, Sterne Library, and the remote storage facility in the 801 Building. UAB students, staff, and faculty can select an item from our OneSearch PRIMO online catalog and have it delivered to the library location most convenient to them. Materials may be returned to Sterne, Lister Hill, or Lister Hill at University Hospital. Courier deliveries are usually completed within 2 days, Monday through Friday. The libraries’ OneSearch system will email the user when an item is ready for pick up. Remember to log in at the top right of the screen in OneSearch to see the request options.
