Located in Room 125 in Sterling Memorial Library, the department provides mail and shipping/receiving services for Sterling Memorial and the 20 other libraries at Yale University, and coordinates mail, shipping, and receiving from many different providers including UPS, Campus Mail and the United States Post Office. We will gladly research any questions you may have about other shippers and carriers, including:
