Have you ever found a print book in Penrose Library’s catalog and wished someone would get it for you so that you could pick up at the Circulation Desk? Or have you found an article or a chapter in a book only available in print and wished it were available electronically? Penrose is proud of both our print and electronic collections and as a result, we are excited to offer a new service for the DU community. In an effort to make using the library even easier and more convenient Penrose now offers paging!
When you find a print resource in our online catalog while conducting research, simply click on the “Request It” button to initiate a request. We will pull any available circulating print item from our collection for you. You can expect that all items requested before 4 p.m. Sunday through Thursday will be available at the Circulation Desk at 8 a.m. the following day. We hope this will save you time in the stacks!
But that’s not all. If an item is currently checked out, we will look to other libraries to borrow a copy for you. Since most items are available within Colorado, delivery of borrowed material usually takes 3-5 business days.
What’s more, if the article or chapter you want is only available in print at Penrose Library, please feel free to request through the Interlibrary Loan link and we will deliver requests within fair use electronically to your desktop. Full information is on the Paging Services website. Read more at DU Today: http://blogs.du.edu/today/news/penrose-library-offers-new-paging-service.
