Getting Materials from Our Collection

There are now three ways you can access library materials.

  1. In person. All libraries have open hours, occupancy permitting, and you can check out materials as usual at the circulation desk. 
  2. Digitization: You may also request a digital copy of an article or book chapter from any materials found in the University Library System (does not include Health Sciences Library System or Law). We’ll digitize the pages and email them to you (limit of 5 requests per person/day within copyright limits).
  3. Ship it. (for Pitt affiliates only) If you’re not able to come to campus, we’ll mail up to 15 ULS-owned items to your home address (U.S. addresses only, outside of Pittsburgh and beyond Pitt campuses). This service is not available for ILL or EZBorrow items.
