Requesting Library Materials Via E-Mail
Students who don’t reside in the Kansas City metropolitan region may request printed books and other materials via e-mail and they will be shipped using regular mail. Please reserve no more than five items at a time, and only those items in the MBTS holdings may be reserved. Articles from print journals owned by MBTS may be sent as an e-mail attachment to the student's campus e-mail. Students may also request single chapters from books or sections of commentaries covering a passage of the Bible, if MBTS owns a print copy. E-mail attachments do not count toward the five item limit.
We ask that you provide the following bibliographical information to fill the request: author, title, and call number. We also need your library card bar code number or your MBTS e-mail address. A confirmation of items reserved will be sent by e-mail. Please return all items by mail. It will be sent at your expense on your account with the MBTS business office, and when returning it is required to be postmarked by the due date to avoid late fines.
Because the loan period for current textbooks is 3 days only, they are not available to be sent by mail.
