Contactless Pickup

Welcome to Contactless Pickup

Welcome to Contactless Pickup! This is an opportunity to borrow books, DVDs and CDs from the SSU library while the library is closed due to the coronavirus. You will need to fill out the Contactless Pickup form, but please read the following carefully before you do so.

Due to library item and library account security, the person to whom the book is checked out must be the one picking up the books. You can not send someone else to pick up your books.

  • This is ONLY for items owned by SSU located in our library. OhioLINK is not active now, but more information will be forthcoming on when that starts up.

  • A limit of 5 items can be entered in the Contactless Pickup Form. If you'd like more than 5, please e-mail

  • Items can be returned to any SSU library bookdrop.

  • Any questions can be sent to
