The Weinberg Memorial Library is pleased to welcome the Class of 2024 to The University of Scranton!

Please use the Library’s Fall 2020 Services guide to stay up to date on current hours and services. This guide provides a listing of service hours, updates, and guidance on seeking research and citation assistance, as well as accessing the Library’s print and online collections.

You can consult a University of Scranton Librarian during our Library hours by calling 570-941-4000 or by using the Ask a Librarian chat box. Research assistance is available 24/7 through the chat box, which is covered by librarians not affiliated with the University of Scranton outside service hours. Research consultations can be scheduled by using the Ask a Librarian chat box or by contacting your library liaison directly by email.

To find resources, such as books, periodicals, and media, search our catalog from the Library’s home page; see our How Do I… guide for more details about searching the catalog and finding materials in the Library. You can also place a hold on materials for contactless pick-up of Library materials.

The Library’s large collection of e-books, e-journals, and streaming media are available 24/7. Please see our Guide to Online Library Resources. To access the Library’s online content, you must first authenticate through my.scranton.edu.

The InterLibrary Loan (ILL) service is available for requesting articles not currently accessible at our library. Books can be requested at this time through ILL or PALCI E-ZBorrow, but requests may not be filled due to limited lending partners. For ILL questions/concerns, please email interlibrary-loan@scranton.edu.
