Study at the Lehigh Valley Library

Scan and Print

A Scannx scanner with touch screen interface and ability to send files to USB, Email, Smart-Phone, or Google Drive is available in the center of the library.

All current students, faculty and staff can print from the computers in the library to the network printer located next to the circulation desk. This printer makes single and double-sided, black-and-white prints (a color printer is available in room 220). Students receive 110 sheets free each semester. Additional sheets may be purchased at a cost of $.05 per page (Instructions on how to purchase additional pages). MobilePrint  enables users with a valid Penn State Access Account to upload documents from personally-owned devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops/desktops to then be released at the Print Release Station next to the printer.

Textbooks and Course Reserves

Many textbooks are on reserve in the library at the Circulation Desk.  Additional books, DVDs, and other physical materials placed on Course Reserve by your instructor can also be borrowed there. 

  • You will need your Penn State ID card to check out materials.
  • Fines of $2/hour will be assessed on overdue items. Items that are lost/damaged will be assessed additional fees.

Articles and other electronic reserves are available online and can be accessed either through Canvas or through the E-Reserves system.

For Instructors

Reserves are placed only during semesters when the course for which those materials were requested is in session. To place physical items on reserve for your course, contact Susan Stumpf at 610-285-5031 or via email at sms490@psu.edu.

To place articles, selections from books (up to 15% per title), or other files on electronic reserve, contact Kathy Romig at 610-285-5151 or via email at  ritabook@psu.edu.
