Finding and Borrowing Books, DVDs, and Other Library Materials

You can check out two items at a time from the Penn Libraries. Books can be checked out for 28 days and can be renewed. DVDs can be checked out for 6 weeks and can only  be renewed once.

Franklin Library Catalog
Look up books by title, author, subject, or keyword. This catalog also contains DVDs, CDs, and other library materials. To see the location of a book, click on "See Shelf Location" in the library location box on the right.

This will give you a map showing the floor number and general area where the book is shelved. For more information on reading call numbers, click here. Feel free to get in touch with any questions.
