How to Request Physical Materials:
- Place your request using the “Request” link in Omni. You will need to sign in with your Western ID.

- You will receive an email when your item(s) is available for pickup, within seven days. Please wait until you receive this email to come to campus. The introduction of enhanced health and safety protocols for Library staff and users means it may take us longer than usual to prepare your request. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
