Update on Library Services and Resources


The library building is currently closed, but the library continues to offer services and resources remotely.

  • 24/7 assistance is available through the Ask a Librarian chat box. The chat is staffed by University of Scranton Librarians during the following hours: Remote Services Schedule. Outside of those hours, coverage is provided by Librarians not affiliated with the University of Scranton. You can also call 570-941-4000 to talk with a University of Scranton Librarian during our Remote Service Hours, or email askalibrarian@scranton.eduat any time.
  • Research consultations are still being offered and can be scheduled by using the Ask a Librarian chat box or by contacting your library liaison directly by email.
  • ILLiad (InterLibrary Loan) service is available for requesting articles, but some requests may not be filled due to our lending partners operating with limited staffing and resources. For Illiad questions/concerns please email interlibrary-loan@scranton.edu.
  • The lending of physical materials, including from the library’s collection, remote storage, and PALCI EZ-Borrow is suspended and unavailable until further notice.
  • The library has a large collection of e-books, e-journals, and streaming media. Please see our Guide to Online Library Resources. To access the library’s online content, you must first authenticate through my.scranton.edu.
  • If you need assistance or are encountering any issues, please use the Ask a Librarian chat box for immediate assistance.
