Borrowing Library Materials

Items housed in the Architecture & Landscape Architecture Library circulate in accordance to the University Libraries Lending Code.

Document Delivery

If Penn State owns an item in a physical volume and not as an e-resource and you require an article or chapter from the print resource, Interlibrary Loan will scan the article/chapter and post it to your ILLiad account. Log into ILLiad to place your request.

Using the 'I Want It' Button

Items will be retrieved from other Library locations, or will be recalled if checked-out to another user, and sent to your preferred pickup Library.

You may use the 'I Want It' button anytime. Items available at other locations are usually available within 3-5 days. Items recalled from other users should be available within 2 weeks. A pickup notice will be sent when your hold becomes available. 

Library Help

Library help and reference services are available at the Architecture & Landscape Architecture Library any time during our scheduled business hours. Appointments can be requested via e-mail.

Additionally, patrons may contact us by telephone (814-865-3614) or e-mail with questions for which short answers are expected. In-depth questions require the patron come to the library in person.

Remote Access to Databases

The University Libraries are committed to providing services to those who are enrolled in Penn State's World Campus and Distance Education programs. Additional information is available on the Libraries' World Campus Library Site.

The University Libraries allows loans and photocopies of most materials owned by the Libraries via interlibrary loan. Persons not affiliated with Penn State who wish to obtain materials owned by the Libraries should contact their local library's interlibrary loan department.

Course Reserves

Looking for your Course Reserves? Use the Course Reserve Search to search for your Course Reserves. Enter the course ID (e.g. ENGL 202D, CN ED 503, etc.) or the instructor’s last name in the search field and click on the appropriate button to search for that information. (Note: searching by course name is inconsistent and is not recommended.)

Services for Persons with Disabilities

There are several designated accessible parking spaces in the parking lot on the east side of our location in the Stuckeman Family Building. The entrance to this parking lot is from Shortlidge Road, right next to North Halls. The University Libraries provide a variety of special aids, resources, and services for people with disabilities. Additional information can be found on the Disabilities Services Web Site.
