I've noticed some questions coming in from College in the Schools (CIS) students recently, and decided to do some checking around on policies, since the status of these students can be a little confusing. CIS students are U of M students taking courses off-site in their high schools. They are located all over the state, so while they are able to check out books and use Library resources, many are not able to get to campus easily. A frequent question from these students is how they can get books sent to them from the Libraries. I checked with Kate Peterson (their liaison) and Libraries to U, to find out the best methods of getting books to them, and here is the response from Libraries to U:
University of Minnesota student, faculty and staff can get books
delivered to them off-campus (residential via UPS). They are charged for
the outgoing shipping and handling and responsible for return shipping.
This is the same for everyone.
CIS students could save themselves the charges by working with their high
school librarians and requesting the items as Interlibrary Loans. The hs
librarians could have the items sent to the high school library for
pickup through Universiy Libraries ILL:
