Student Services

Circulation/Course Reserves

PSU students may borrow an unlimited number of books during the academic year. The student loan period is 30 days. The library may recall a book after fourteen days, if requested by another patron. A student’s PSU I.D. serves as the borrower’s library card. Cards are non-transferable to other patrons. The owner of the card will be held responsible for any lost, overdue or damaged books charged out in his name. The Reserve collection consists of course related readings, permanent departmental materials, magazines, newspapers, and a selection of heavily used Reference materials. Students who need access to reserve materials can expedite the process by providing the course number (ex. BU-3180-01) to the Information Desk staff.
