If you need a book or article that PSU does not have you can request it through Interlibrary Loan.  (The link can also be found at the bottom of the library website.)

InterLibrary Loan is free to all PSU students, faculty, and staff.  For books, it usually takes about a week to arrive.  Articles usually arrive electronically within 2-3 days.
