Library Pickup: Hope Brings Strength Health Sciences Libraries

What can I request to borrow?
You may request books owned by any Rowan University Library, including the Hope Brings Strength Health Sciences Library (Stratford), the Campbell Library (Glassboro), and the CMSRU Library (Camden). Item availability and borrowing policies are determined by the owning library. 

How Does This Work?
To place a request, you must be logged into your account in Library Search.

  • Step 1: Search Library Collection

Starting at the Hope Brings Strength Health Sciences Library homepage, select “Library Search” and enter your search terms in the Library Search box. Hit enter or click the magnifying glass button to submit the search.

  • Step 2: Refine Your Results

On your page of results, you will see a set of options for refining your results down the left side of the screen. Limit to "Held by Library" to filter the results that may be available for pickup.

  • Step 3: Request Pickup

Click the title of the item in your search results to view more information.
Under the “Get It” section, you should see an option for “Library Pickup”. You must be signed into your account to see the request options.

Click on “Library Pickup”. Use the drop down to choose to pick up at either the Hope Brings Strength Library (Stratford) or the Learning Commons (Sewell). Add any optional comments.
When you are ready, click Send Request.

  • Step 4: Notification

A notification will be sent to your Rowan email when your item is ready to pick up. The subject line will state “Your requested item”.

  • Step 5: Pickup

Rowan-Virtua faculty, staff, and students may choose to pick up at Stratford or Sewell.


Orders can be picked up at the Hope Brings Strength Health Sciences Library’s Service Desk during operating hours. A staff member will check the item out to you at the desk. See operating hours here.


Orders can be picked up 24/7 at the Sewell Learning Commons (second floor, Room B200). Your books will already be checked out to you; find them on the open hold shelf at the front desk inside of the Learning Commons. You will not need to do anything—simply take the book(s) with you.
