Discover Resources @HU Library
Interlibrary loan helps current Harrisburg University students, faculty, and staff get copies of items that are unavailable in our own library. Just tell us what you need; we will find out which other library owns it and request a copy, free of charge to you.
You can request these types of materials:
|Theses and dissertations||Newspaper articles|
|Video & sound recordings||Book chapters|
|Conference proceedings chapters|
Placing Requests for Interlibrary Loan Materials
Submit your contact information and all the information that you have about the item by filling out one of these forms:
Please allow 7 business days to receive your information request. You will be notified when your item is ready for pick-up. If your document comes in electronic format, we will e-mail it to you at the address specified in the form.
Please note: The Harrisburg University Library does not regularly provide course textbooks as a matter of policy. If you have any questions about interlibrary loan, please call the University Librarian at 717-901-5188.
The HU Library purchases print and electronic materials for library collections to support teaching and learning at HU. Available funds are divided among the following:
- Books are automatically ordered according to a very focused approval plan.
- Books are ordered upon request by faculty and students.
- A small browsing collection of magazines and journals is located in the Learning Commons to support current awareness.
- Electronic resources are selected in consultation with faculty members to ensure coverage of all disciplines. Emphasis is placed on electronic resources that provide access to full text content.
Your suggestions are encouraged. Contact the University Librarian at Library@HarrisburgU.edu
