Curbside Pickup Service

UNB Libraries is pleased to make our print collections available again to UNB and STU students, faculty, and staff. We are offering a contactless, curbside pickup service for on-shelf, circulating materials that are not available electronically.

Our curbside service is easy to use:

  • Sign in to the library catalogue: UNB WorldCat
  • Search for the item(s) you need
  • Select the Request (Fac/Students) button, and your pickup location: Harriet Irving Library (Fredericton) or Hans W. Klohn Commons (Saint John)
  • Please submit requests judiciously

Pickup locations:

Once your items are ready, you will be contacted by library staff with a pickup time at one of our two pickup locations:

  • Fredericton: Harriet Irving Library (back exit, next to the Book Drop)
  • Saint John: Hans W. Klohn Commons

Your items will be bagged and checked out to your library account before you arrive. Materials can be returned via the book drops on each campus.
