Requesting/holding books


The libraries offer a requesting/holding service for items from other campuses.  If you are a main campus patron and need an item from the Ambler or Health Sciences collections, you may log in with your AccessNet or guest login to request the item.  This service works in reverse as well:  Health Sciences, Ambler, and Harrisburg may request items from Paley Library.

If you are a main campus patron and want an item from Paley Library, you must come to the library and locate the item yourself in order to check it out.  This is why, if you're a main campus patron, you will not see Paley Library in the drop-down menu as a possible pick-up location of Paley items.

If you have any questions about this service, please call 215-204-0744.
