DocDel is a new method for Marshall University faculty and staff on the Huntington campus to receive requested items to their department mailbox.  Almost anything requested from EZBorrow, Interlibrary Loan (ILL), and Marshall Library’s holdings can be delivered to department mailboxes.  Items marked “In Library Use Only” are prohibited from being delivered.  Deliveries will be made every Tuesday and Thursday, between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m.

How does DocDel work?

  1. Complete the online form to sign up for the service.
  2. Submit requests for EZBorrow, Interlibrary Loan (ILL), or Marshall Library-owned items (via My Library account) as you normally would.
  3. Wait for your requested items to arrive at your department mailbox. And that’s it!
  4. You can opt-out at any time by sending an email to and stating your preferences.

PLEASE NOTE:  this is a DELIVERY service only. DocDel staff will not accept items for return to the library.

Questions regarding DocDel can be directed to the Drinko Circulation Desk by e-mail at, or by phone at extension 6-6568.
