Music Library Guide: Curbside Pickup

This guide is a central portal to all Music Library services.

Requesting Music Library Items for Curbside Pickup


DU students, faculty, staff, and alumni may request physical library items (books, scores, and recordings) from the Music Library for curbside pick up.

For a musical version of these instructions (thanks to Duke University), click here.

DU students, faculty, and staff (not alumni) may request items from Anderson Academic Commons or the Hampden Center. 

To request materials from the Music Library, the AAC, or the Hampden Center, use the Request button in our Catalog. (Alumni please email to make a request for curbside pickup.)


Finding and Requesting Items

Search for your physical library item using the Compass search bar (click here), and click to open the record.



If not already signed in, use your DU ID and password to log into your library account.



The status of the item will appear on the right hand side.



To request the item, click on the Request link above the item information. Note where the item can be picked up once available. Hampden Center materials will be delivered to the Anderson Academic Commons. All other materials must be picked up from the lending library (i.e. Music materials should be picked up at Music and AAC materials picked up at the AAC ). We apologize that we are not able to deliver materials between libraries at this time.



Picking Up Your Requested Items

When your items are ready for pick-up, you will be informed via your DU email and will then be able to make an appointment to pick-up your materials. Requests will generally be available for pick-up within 5-7 business days.
