Campus Lending Library

The Campus Lending Library loans course materials to UPS students, free of charge.

Lending library materials are available for the Fall 2020 semester, despite the move to online instruction!

Browse the catalog of available books here.  Note that the catalog has separate tabs for Humanities, STEM, Social Science, and Language classes, as well as Novels. Press Control-F (PC) or Command-F (Mac) to search for specific titles or authors within each tab.

Then request items using this form.  You will need to sign in to your Puget Sound G Suite Account. We will confirm your reservation of the items by email.

If you are living outside of Tacoma for the Fall 2020 semester, we will mail the books to you free of charge. 

If you are living in Tacoma, pick up your books from the Student Diversity Center (3216 N. 13th Street).  We will place them in a paper bag with your name on it. 

Please return all borrowed material to the Student Diversity Center when on-campus classes resume. 

Email if you have questions or need assistance!

As a campus community we strive to promote the well-being and success of all of our students. To help defray the costs of course materials, the Center for Student Support hosts an on-campus lending library. The lending library presents an opportunity for students to borrow  academic books and textbooks for classes free of charge.  It also presents an opportunity for students to support their fellow Loggers by donating used books to the collection.

We respect the identities and backgrounds of all members on this campus, and we strive to make this lending library a welcoming place for all who need its contents. 

The lending library is located in the Student Diversity Center (3216 N. 13th Street), but please use the request system explained above rather than pulling books directly from the shelves. 

For questions, comments, and information about donating to the lending library, please email us at
