Quite often, you will find references to sources which are not journal articles or books. In particular, you may find references to conference or meeting abstracts. In this case, a scientist has presented his or her research at a conference or meeting and instead of publishing a journal article, the scientist has published a brief abstract summarizing his or her results in a professional society publication called a 'proceedings.' Sometimes these conference proceedings may be available online for free and sometimes they are only available in print. The following links will help you obtain them.
EZBorrow/PALCI (Pennsylvania Academic Library Consortium, Inc.) is a web gateway that allows simultaneous searching of academic library catalogs in Pennsylvania. You can directly request books from another library, thus greatly speeding up the time it takes to get the book (usually 3-4 days) as compared to 1-2 weeks for regular interlibrary loans
So, if you want to borrow a book from another library, ALWAYS try EZBorrow/PALCI first. You will need to log in with your Husky ID and password or Lib # (bottom left corner of your ID card).
