Organizational Dynamics: Library Services for Faculty

Faculty Express

 FacultyEXPRESS is a service offered by the Penn Library to standing, tenure-track faculty.

The Library will:

Deliver circulating Penn Library materials (books, videos, etc.) to faculty members' departmental administrative offices or any campus library.

Provide web delivery of articles, papers, and book excerpts (50 page limit) from the Penn collections.

Obtain and deliver material not available in the Penn Library collections.

Course Reserves

Print reserves:  Faculty may place books, journal articles and other materials on reserve. To ensure maximum availability, reserve materials are generally charged out by the hour or overnight. The main reserve room at Penn is Rosengarten Reserve, located in the Undergraduate Study Center on the ground floor of the Van Pelt Library and open all night during the fall and spring semesters.

E-Reserves:  The reserve staff can assist in adding reading materials to your Canvas or Blackboard site.  Please contact Rosengarten Reserves directly.
