How to Request a Dana Book (It’s probably not in the Library)

Because most of our books are in external storage at the moment, you will need to put in a request to get the books you need. Here is how to make a request:

Search for books using CATQuest, Classic Catalog or Dana’s Website. When you find the books you want, look for the “Request from Annex” button in RED, click on it, and complete the available form. This is how you can electronically request those books that are not in the library. There is no need to request a book in person at the library. Make the request online from anywhere.

Request submitted by 11:30 am, will be available for pick-up by 4:30 pm that same day, Monday thru Friday!


If you don’t see the “Request from Annex” button, look  to see if the book is located at the Research or Williston Annex. If this is so, from Dana’s homepage, choose “Request from Annex” under Services and complete the form.

Are you not sure where the item is? Please contact the Main Desk by phone at 656-2200, by email at or in person.

For questions or concerns, contact Marianne Burke, Director, at 656-3483.
