SML Study Carrel and Bass Library Locker Policies and Usage: Study Carrel Delivery

What is the Study Carrel Delivery service?

Would you like your books delivered directly to your study carrel instead of to a library hold shelf? Now you can place a request in Orbis, our online library catalog, and have your library materials delivered directly to your study carrel!

What are the benefits of this service?

  • You will be given a unique log in to request items to be delivered to your carrel. Newly delivered books will appear in your carrel within 2 business days (excludes recess periods and holidays.) You will not have to fill out charge slips for these materials; staff will charge materials to your carrel prior to delivery.
  • You will have access to a list of all of the items that are stored in your carrel.


If you are interested in learning more about this service, please contact We will direct you to the staff person that can assist you with carrel delivery instructions.
