Interlibrary Loan

 

Interlibrary Loan Service Policy (pdf download)

The library offers students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to borrow materials not currently owned by the library through the use of two web-based services, PALCI EZ Borrow and Tipasa. A valid Misericordia University email address is required to use both systems.

Physical materials like books and DVDs can be picked up and returned at the Circulation desk. Always check Misericordia’s library catalog and Journal Finder first to see if materials are available in our collection before submitting a request. Requests will be processed in the order in which they are received.

Please note that processing time is required for interlibrary loan requests; delivery of articles can take up to 2-10 days, and delivery of books can take up to 14 days from when a request is processed by a lending library. (Delivery times are subject to change.) 

Requests will be processed in the order in which they are received. If you need further assistance, please contact the Circulation Desk at (570) 674-6231 or loan@misericordia.edu. More information is available in the Mary Kintz Bevevino Library Interlibrary Loan Service Policy.
