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
In order to place an interlibrary loan, you can sign into your Tipasa account. This link should either sign you in automatically or take you to a Harrisburg University sign in page. Once you are signed in, it will automatically direct you to the form that will need to be filled out, your contact information will be auto populated into this form. The only contact information that you have to fill out is the Patron ID field which will be your email address.
This process can also be completed in the EBSCO databases and the PRIMO catalog. A link labeled "Request through Interlibrary Loan" will automatically populate when an item that is not owned by Harrisburg University is found. Completing this process through the EBSCO databases and the catalog will also allow the form to automatically fill in the information about the item that you are requesting.
Please allow 7 to 14 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.
If you have any questions about interlibrary loan, please email the librarians at firstname.lastname@example.org.
