Accessibility information

For All Visitors

The nature of a high-density facility precludes the possibility of browsing through the collection to locate materials. Generally, users with specific needs are encouraged to request delivery of books and journals to the on-campus library of their choice.

Users can request that materials from storage be delivered for use in any of the libraries on campus through the Franklin catalog; or, alternatively, they can request through this form.

In cases where the user must consult a large number of volumes at once, it may instead be more convenient to ask for those materials to be retrieved and held in the reading room at LIBRA. To visit LIBRA in person, both Penn and non-Penn users must contact the LIBRA Facility staff in advance at 856-381-4025 or to arrange a visit if it is appropriate.
