For general inquiries, contact the Lemieux Library Circulation Desk at 206-296-6233 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
You can place holds on items that are currently available at the Seattle University Libraries. You can request items from both the Lemieux and Law Libraries, and choose which library you would like to pick them up from. You will receive an email when your items are ready to be picked up.
How long will you hold my item?
Once your hold request is processed, materials will remain on the shelf for six business days.
What happens if I place a hold for an item currently checked out?
If you place a hold for an item currently checked out, you will be placed next in line to borrow the item. A hold request does not change the original due date, but it does prevent the current borrower from renewing it.
Seattle University students, faculty, and staff may renew books, media, and journals online, by phone, or in person at the Circulation Desk.
How do I locate my due date?
Due dates are available on the "Loan Receipt" emailed to you by the library. You can also view due dates by logging into your SU Primo library account.
Where do I return my items?
Books, media, and journals can be returned to the Lemieux Library Circulation Desk on the 3rd floor during regular library hours, or at any of our three book drops:
