Borrowing library items from another Penn State campus

You can place a hold on and borrow a book, video, or other item from any Penn State location.

1. Locate the item in either LionSearch or the CAT

2. Use the "I Want It" button.

3. Select your pick up location.

4. Click "Place Hold". 

The item will be delivered to the library at your local campus within 2-3 days, assuming it is currently avaiable.  You will receive an email when the book is ready to be picked up and checked out.

You can also check the current status of your holds by going to "Library Accounts" on the library webpage.

Library materials may be returned to any Penn State library.

For items where the "I Want It" button does not work, submit your request using InterLibrary Loan.
