You can now once again use the EZBorrow service to request books and DVDs from other Pennsylvania Academic Library Consortium (PALCI) institutions.  Once requested, the items are shipped to Falvey Library and you will be notified when items are available for pickup.

You should use the ILLiad service to request a scan of pages, a chapter or an article from Falvey’s print collections or materials on Course Reserves, as well as articles and book chapters sent electronically from other libraries. Physical materials are not yet requestable via ILLiad.

Physical materials from Falvey’s collections are available using the Hold and Contactless Pickup process. Since the stacks are currently closed, learn how to Browse the Shelves Virtually.

Falvey maintains several Reciprocal Borrowing programs. The University of Pennsylvania program, however, is currently limited to some online resources and in-person borrowing using the Pickup@Penn service.
