The University Libraries are pleased to be able to deliver print items to students enrolled in one of Mercer’s online or hybrid programs.  Students who live farther than fifty (50) miles from the closest Mercer University Library may request the delivery of print items to their home address. To request an item, send an e-mail to Library Circulation with the following information:

  • your name and Mercer University ID (MUID)
  • name of your online or hybrid program
  • the physical mailing address where the item is to be sent
  • the complete citation for the requested item, including the location for the item

Only circulating print items are sent through this service.  Items from media collections, reference, or archives are not included in this service.  Requestors who live less than fifty (50) miles from a Mercer University Libraries location can contact us for assistance.
