We do at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Here is the
description from our webpage:

The UMass/Amherst Libraries offers a program called Library Express
that provides direct delivery of articles and regularly circulating
books from the library collections located in the W.E.B. Du Bois Library
and in the Integrated Sciences and Engineering Library. There is no fee
for this service at this time. It is available to any current or retired
faculty or staff and current students on campus or off, near or far.

How can I use the service?

Submit your request as you would any Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery
request via the Interlibrary Loan request form.

What Materials are not eligible for this service?

We will not deliver media (CDs, DVDs or Microfilm/fiche) normally
non-circulating materials such as those designated as "Reference" or
materials from Reserve at this time. Articles exceeding 50 pages will be
scanned and delivered at the discretion of the ILL/DD staff. (Workload
and technology limitations allowing).

How will I receive my books?
Off campus users will receive delivery via USPS Priority Mail with
signature needed for delivery. You will be responsible for returning
this item to circulation services by the due date indicated and for
ensuring that the material is returned to us safely. We recommend using
a traceable method of return to guarantee safe delivery. A mailing label
is enclosed for your convenience.

Users with local address will have their books retrieved and placed on
the Circulation hold shelf for pick-up. We do not offer on-campus
delivery at this time.

How will I receive my copies?
Copies of articles, book chapters or other pages will be delivered to
you electronically if possible. Articles exceeding 50 pages will be
scanned and delivered at the discretion of the ILL/DD staff. (Workload
and technology limitations allowing).
