Non-Delivery Day Log

Below is a list of dates when no ReCAP delivery took place.  The ReCAP courier regularly delivers every weekday except for University Holidays and weather emergencies.  CUL has a contract with Bohren's Moving and Storage for these deliveries. 

Relevant staff are notified via nondeliverydayrecap@library.columbia.edu.

Italicized entries describe delays due to computer systems not physical delivery.

The courier delivers to both ReCAP partners NYPL and CUL in Manhattan.  Columbia has several drop-off points.  It is customary for CUL to suspend delivery when NYPL is closed (e.g. MLK Day).

To pre-determine closures consult the following websites:

  1. Columbia University Academic Calendar
  2. Columbia University Holiday & Personal Days
  3. Princeton University Holiday Schedules
  4. NYPL Closings
