Requesting Materials from the Library

Did you know that you could have Libraries’ materials delivered to you? Shipments are made via UPS or US Mail to the address in your library account profile (return mailing label included). Signing up for the service is a two-step procedure:

  1. Nittany Lion mascot standing in Penn State library stacks holding bookCheck to see if you need to update your library account. If you’ve registered for classes you should already have an account. You can check by clicking on Library Accounts in the top right corner of any Penn State Libraries web page, then clicking on My Library Account. If your information isn’t current, you can update it.
  2. Register for ILLIAD Services. Enter the address you want the books to be delivered to. Choose “World Campus” in the Campus Location drop-down box and “World” in the Pickup Location drop-down box. Scanned articles and book chapters will be posted to your ILLiad account.
