Request Materials

Request an item from a Metropolitan community college campus library or Omaha Public Library.

MCC items: You may request that a book, DVD or other item owned by the Elkhorn Valley Campus, Fort Omaha Campus or South Omaha Campus libraries be sent to another campus for you to pick up. This includes the Applied Technology, Fremont and Sarpy centers.

Omaha Public Library items: You may also ask that an item owned by Omaha Public Library be sent to a MCC campus library. Please note that you cannot request Omaha Public Library items for pick up at the Applied Technology, Fremont or Sarpy centers.

MAKE AN ONLINE REQUEST WITHIN THE LIBRARY CATALOG

NOTE: This option is only available if you plan to pick up your material at a campus library: Elkhorn Valley Campus, Fort Omaha Campus, South Omaha Campus. Do not use it if you wish to have items sent to the ATC, Fremont or Sarpy centers.
