Tyndale Horsey Express Info

Introducing the J. William Horsey Library Express! With much of our book collection still being held in storage rooms behind the library, we've adopted a temporary system to help you retrieve the books that you need.

As we're still in the process of renovating our new library, the AVAILABLE status in WorldCat may not be accurate for your item.

IMPORTANT: In order to be eligible for retrieval, the catalogue record must contain a note indicating that "This item will remain available during construction of the new Tyndale Library" as pictured in the screenshot below. Items that do not have this note are currently unavailable – even if the Status reads “Available” – but may be requested from another library by clicking the blue “Request Item through Interlibrary Loan” button.

Horsey Express Example

Items that require the Horsey Express

Please fill out the Tyndale Horsey Express form and we will retrieve the following items for you:

  • items with call numbers A, B – BC, BT – BV, C, E – K, P – PQ, PT – Q, and S – Z that have a note indicating that "This item will remain available during construction of the new Tyndale Library."
  • All kits, periodicals, and pamphlets that have a note indicating that "This item will remain available during construction of the new Tyndale Library."
Self Serve Items

Items that you can retrieve yourself from the library stacks are:

  • items with the call number BD BS, BX, D, LN, PR, PS or R that have a note indicating that "This item will remain available during construction of the new Tyndale Library"
  • all DVDs and CDs
Picking up requested items

Retrieved items will be available for pickup from the Horsey Express Shelf (near the circulation desk) one hour after we receive your request.

If the item is already checked out, we'll contact you and place you in the hold queue, notifying you by email when the item is ready. You may place requests up to 30 minutes before closing time. Requests made after this time will be available for pickup one hour after opening on the following business day. See J. William Horsey Library Hours to better plan your visit!
