Penn State Libraries To Begin Scheduled Walk-Up Service August 3

Penn State University Libraries will launch a walk-up service for students, faculty, and staff beginning Monday, August 3, the university announced this week.

Those who take part in the service can pick up and check out select materials and books from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. outside of the library’s Curtain Road entrance.

Users picking up requested materials must wear a mask and show their Penn State ID or borrowing card for verification. Nearly half of Penn State Libraries’ materials will be available digitally through the HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS).

While this pick-up service is in effect, Penn State will continue providing remote resources to students, faculty, and staff.

Physical copies in the library catalog that are not available through HathiTrust ETAS will appear as an “I Want It” option. From there, users can click the “I Want It” button to add it to their account. A more detailed list of instructions for requesting items for checkout can be found here.

Penn State Libraries facilities will remain closed to the public for the time being. Soon, it will announce reopening plans and hours of availability.
