If you would like to borrow one of the library's print books, simply click the book's title in the Book & eBook Catalog.  In the window that opens, you will see a "Request This Item" button (see picture below).  Click that button, and fill in the request form.  Our onsite staff will receive the request, and will contact you to confirm that you want the book to be shipped to you. As soon as you verify this, the book will be shipped to the address given on the request form.

APUS print  books are loaned for 45 days with a possible renewal of two weeks, provided there have been no other requests for the particular book. Generally, no more than four books can be borrowed at a time. APUS pays to ship the loan to you via UPS. You are responsible for return shipping costs, and may use whichever shipping method you prefer.

Note: these policies apply to print books held in the APUS Library's physical headquarters in Charles Town, West Virginia.  If you need to request a book that is not a part of our library's collection -- print or electronic -- please click here to read about interlibrary loan services.
