Books by Mail & InterLibrary Loan Update

The David Allan Hubbard Library is happy to report our Books by Mail and InterLibrary Loan (ILL) are again available for our students and faculty. Additional guidelines for both services are listed through our LibGuide here. A note for ILL, print requests are entirely dependent on participating libraries, which means your request may be cancelled if no library is able to supply the item. Also, ILL fulfillment may take longer due to mandatory book isolation.

Please update your mailing address via your library account.

Hubbard Library may also stop both services if it is no longer safe to offer.

Email for any questions or concerns. Thank you!

Hubbard Library Book Pick Up – Update

Starting June 16, 2020, the Hubbard Library is now allowing unlimited book pick ups per week, at 8 books per pick up. The request form will now reflect this change. Please note we will try as hard as possible to fulfill requests in a timely manner. If you have submitted multiple requests prior to today, please email so we can try to combine your requests.

  • Reference works
    Reason: reference works are expensive and if lost or damaged will have to be replaced. Patrons can request scans of chapters through Scan on Demand.
  • Course Reserves books
    Reason: the library needs required texts for scanning and eReserves. Patrons can request scans of chapters through Scan on Demand.
  • Journals (bound and loose)
    Reason: it is difficult to replace journals, especially bound ones, since publishers only print them once. Patrons can request scans of articles through Scan on Demand.
  • Special Collections
    Reason: items in special collections have been deemed rare and needed for in-library use only. These can be expensive and or impossible to replace.

Thank you for your patience as we adjust and evolve this new service. For questions, please email

WEPA Machine in Mailroom Breezeway

In an effort to assist with the student need for printing, a WEPA machine has been moved to the Mail Room breezeway in Payton Hall. This area will be open for access while the Mail Room is open from 8am – 4pm. Supplies are available to sanitize prior to usage.

If you have questions on how to use WEPA, please view our how-to page here.

The Library receives notifications of paper jams and other errors related to the machine. We will try and fix these errors as soon as we are able.

A special thank you to IT for helping in this matter.

Hubbard Library Offering Book Pick Up

The David Allan Hubbard Library is administering pick up service in front of the library starting June 1, 2020. This service is offered Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, with varied hours in the mornings and afternoons. 

After filling out the book pick up form, patrons are contacted with a day and time for pick up. Patrons will need to confirm their pick up time with the library. Upon arrival, patrons will be directed to wait at the foot of the steps by library staff to ensure proper social distancing. Patrons will need to present their Fuller ID for proof of identity and confirmation of package. Library staff will place the package on the table for the patron to retrieve. Patrons are encouraged to leave campus once they receive their items. 

Patrons must wear a mask when picking up items, no exceptions. You also must use your email to use the pick up form. 

The first couple of weeks will be used to determine any adjustments for both library staff and patrons. Guidelines will continuously be evaluated and plans to expand this service are being discussed and are subject to Pasadena health orders.

Items not available for pick up are Reference, Course Reserves, journals, and library technology (e.g. Chromebooks). To ensure the library can fulfill requests from the entire campus community, items available as eBooks will be cancelled.

Full explanation of the book pick up guidelines are located here. The library building remains closed.

Hubbard Library – Due Date & Overdue Reminder Emails

Given the Fuller Theological Seminary campus shut down and California’s Stay at Home order, Hubbard Library is working on bulk changing due dates during said closure. All items with a due date during the closure will be reset to April 20 (or later depending on reopening).

If you have turned in your item(s) in the drop box outside the Library and you still receive a notice, don’t worry. Book check in during this time may take a bit longer than previously done.

If you get an overdue notice of a book already returned to the book drop or that was due during our closure, please let us know. We are currently working on extending all due dates until the library’s reopening.

Contact if you have additional questions.

Student Service Team Update 3/24 – Library

The Hubbard Library remains committed to assisting our patrons during this time. Please read the following in regards to library services.
Due Dates During Closure

Items due during the closure may be given an extension until the campus reopens on Monday, April 20*. Email or go to your library account to renew your books. You may also turn in your books to the book drop outside the Library, if it is needed. (*This date may be adjusted in the future.)

Scan on Demand

Fuller Seminary staff have been directed to stay off campus until early April and until then, only allowed for short periods of time. As such, we are unable to process any Scan on Demand requests until then. Fulfillment of requests, given the extreme time constraints, may take up to two weeks or more.

Articles and book chapter ILL requests from other institutions may not be fulfilled due to the limited number of participating libraries. Books by Mail is also cancelled for the spring quarter.
