Service Update (as of July 6, 2020)


  • Pickup service launches July 8 for Marquette faculty and graduate students, allowing them to request items from the library’s circulating print collections for pickup at the library’s main circulation desk.

    As research begins to ramp back up at Marquette and with the guidance of the COVID-19 response team, Raynor Memorial Libraries will be taking book retrieval requests from faculty and graduate students beginning July 8. Faculty and graduate students can place a request online for items and, when they are ready, these items can be picked up in person at Raynor Library’s main circulation desk Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m., with Marquette ID.

    A mask and social distancing will be required at pickup.  No additional in-person library services are available at this time.
