KCU Young Library Policies and Procedures During Covid-19

This guide will help you determine how to access Young Library resources and assistance during the Covid-19 Pandemic.


If you are concerned about using the library for long periods of time, we are happy to locate physical materials for you, check them out to you, and have them ready for you in a plastic bag to pick up quickly.  We are also happy to scan articles and email them to you.  You will need to use the following steps for this service:

For Books:

  1. Use the Online Catalog to locate the materials that you would like to check out.
  2. Copy and paste the title, author, and call number of the item/items that you would like to have into an email directed to
  3. KCU students, faculty, and staff may check out up to 15 items at a time.
  4. Community patrons may check out up to 6 items at a time - no more than 2 DVDs.
  5. Include your name and ID number in your email so that the items can be checked out to you.
  6. An email will be sent to your KCU email when the items are ready for pickup.
