Tyndale Horsey Express Info

This information was updated November 27, 2018

Welcome to the J. William Horsey Library Express! As much of our book collection  held in storage rooms on campus, we've adopted a  system to help you retrieve the books that you need.

IMPORTANT: All items listed as being in Main Library STORAGE are available for retrieval through the Horsey Express service.  We will hold your requested items at the Main Library circulation desk for 24 hours. We are currently working to  integrate books marked as being OFFSITE  back into the library. During this transitional stage we may actually be able to find some of the  items listed as being OFFSITE and UNAVAILABLE. Ask Library staff to check the call number of the OFFSITE book that you want.
