Alden Library develops new delivery service
Service brings materials to faculty, staff on Athens campus

Faculty and staff members can now spend more time on their work and less time traveling to Alden Library to pick up research and classroom materials thanks to a new delivery system.

The Faculty and Staff Delivery Service, delivers materials from the main library -- as well as the library annex, the Music and Dance library, branch campuses, Ohio Link and Interlibrary loans -- to registered users on the Athens campus. Library staff makes two daily runs to the main office of each college, where faculty and staff can pick up their ordered materials.

The driving force behind the system, which was initiated by Executive Vice President and Provost Kathy Krendl, was to give faculty more time for their own studies, said George Cheripko, who is in charge of the program.

"Mainly it is an aid to research," Cheripko said. "It allows faculty to continue working, instead of traveling to the library."

Cheripko said about 150 faculty and staff members have used the delivery system already. He said the College of Osteopathic Medicine, the College of Education, the College of Health and Human Services, as well as several professors in the Department of Political Science are using the service the most.

Assistant Professor of Early Childhood Education Lena Lee said she uses the delivery service often because it is convenient and fast.

"I'm usually busy doing research and teaching, so the system is perfect for me" Lee said. 

To use the service, faculty and staff must submit an online enrollment form at www.library.ohiou.edu/serv/faculty-delivery.html. After selecting the desired item, click the Intercampus/Annex Request button at the top of the page, and choose "My Office" as your pickup location.

For additional information about the delivery service call 740-593-2693.
