Borrowing information

As a borrower, you are also responsible for all materials charged to your account. Borrowing materials "for" someone else with your card, loaning library materials charged to your account to another, or giving library materials to someone else to return for you does not alleviate your responsibility for such materials.

Accessing and Requesting Material via PSU Libraries' Catalog and Interlibrary Loan

How do I request material from the library catalog? 

To place a request on an item in the Library Catalog, click the "I Want It" button on the item record.  Select a pickup location.  Users may select any PSU library location to use as a pickup location.  The pickup location for the law library appears as "Penn State Law (UP) - Katz Bldg, LAW/SIA"  

If you would like to pick up library material at the Pattee/Paterno library select "University Park Library Pickup - Pattee/Paterno Curtain Rd Entrance" when placing holds in the catalog. If you wish to have your material still made available at Pattee you may change your pickup location for this service. Log into your ILLiad account, click Update Account Preferences and select Pattee Common Services Desk. 

How do I pick up materials from the Law Library? 

You will receive email notification with pickup information when your requested item arrives at the library.  Please see Circulation desk hours.  

If you have any questions about borrowing materials located in the Law Library or if you are not sure where your materials are located, please email and we will help you determine where the materials are located and the correct pick-up location.
