Access Services

Access Services is the administrative home of six University Libraries service units: The Annex, Collection Maintenance, Course Reserves Services, Interlibrary Loan, Lending Services, and Marion MacKinnon Adaptive Technology and Services all committed to making collections accessible to all. We circulate books and other media at the Commons Services Desk; maintain order in the book stacks and four off-site shelving locations; facilitate borrowing and lending between Penn State Libraries and libraries at other institutions; supply course readings via E-Reserves, Canvas and The CAT; and support people with disabilities through uniquely customized services and technology. Books and other materials can be requested for delivery to a library pick up location via the “I Want It” feature in The CAT. At University Park we deliver materials directly to faculty offices. Ask about borrowing privileges at the Commons Services Desk.
