You can use PILOT: The Library's Catalog to find books you want, then request them using the Item Retrieval link. We'll mail the books to you (full directions are included at the bottom of this message).

If you have any more questions about checking-out books or using the library's resources, please email back or call the Reference Desk at (724)938-4094.
